their debut ep, self released in 2008, introduces us to the band’s delicately epic songwriting & unique blend of folky sensibilities & lush, dramatic orchestration.

‘the starlight ep’ holds very early versions of 2 album tracks & 2 exclusive compositions. ‘my shield’ opens in stunning form with heartbreaking strings & a fragile vocal. the introspective ‘if i have been unkind’ displays effective & deftly executed male/female vocal harmonies. ‘in starlight’s steady pulse, sleigh bells & twinkling melodies finds them sounding most like the wintry icelandic bands they are oft compared to. ‘i love you, sleepyhead’ rounds off the ep with plaintive accordion & vocals. hand-made packaging with wax seal.
