it’s a week till our ep launch shows, at stereo in glasgow 3/10, and summerhall in edinburgh 4/10.

we’re going to be joined live by a percussionist, signy jakobsdottir, which is really exciting!

the good folks at CLASH MAGAZINE are streaming a brand new track from our new EP, called “Puskas”.

i say brand new, but if you’ve seen us playing live in the last twelve months, chances are you’ve heard it before. regardless, this is the best version of it you’ll have heard yet.

head over to CLASH to hear the track, and read what they have to say about it.

we’re playing two live dates in scotland this october to launch the ep. friday the 3rd at stereo in glasgow, and saturday the 4th at summerhall in edinburgh. they’re gonnae be two pretty special shows, but more on that soon… click HERE & HERE to find tickets and further details.



we are very excited to announce that we will be releasing a brand new EP this october, entitled “talking shapes”.

to celebrate, we’re letting you hear the opening track, “the next day”. we’ve been playing this one live for a while now, but it’s great to let you hear the recorded version.

to support the release, we will be touring the UK, coming to venues and towns both familiar and brand new. check out the dates here!

thank you to those who are including “on floating bodies” on their end of year lists. i’m as high fidelity as the next fan, so i appreciate the inclusion.

we’ve had a great year with the release of the second album, working with chemikal underground, with sleepsound agency and paper & iron booking, and we’ve toured plenty this year. thanks to everyone who came to see us in 2013.

we’re now working on a new ep of songs, which we hope will be out in the coming spring/summer. can’t wait for you to hear the new songs…


we play 7pm on the saturday night, at the pavilion.
