In the build up to the release of our 2nd album in July, we wanted to share some of the music that has formed part of its inspiration. With nearly 4 years since the recording of the last album, our new project has given us an opportunity to build a more collaborative element into our music, along with a broader array of textures and sounds. We hope this playlist provides an interesting insight into the feel and aesthetics behind our new album.

Since the winner of the first competition didn’t claim their tickets, we’ve had to dust off the Talons Lottery Raffle Lucky Bucket once more. This time we’re going to have more fun with it.

SO if you want to win two tickets to ArcTanGent festival (just look at that lineup, oh my), you have to draw us a caricature of THIS PICTURE:

The least flattering the better. The creator of our favourite picture will receive TWO TICKETS TO ARCTANGENT FESTIVAL, SOME MERCH AND A SWIMMING LESSON WITH OUR DRUMMER ALEX.

You have until Friday.

Back in February travelling home from Denmark, we got bored on the ferry and made a film. We’d been watching too much Twin Peaks and decided to make a psychological horror comedy called “The Fisherman”. After months in the post production studio, here it is.
