if you fancy an antidote to the oppressive cheer of the merriest of seasons, these two offer a comfortingly moody alternative with a depth that’ll have us coming back again & again even after Christmas has long since passed.

Originally intended as a one-off seasonal release, their eponymous single proved such fun to write that soon they had enough songs for an EP. “Then, on a nice, sunny, summer morning, I phoned Hubby & suggested we just do a whole album,” says Moffat. The album also features their cover of Yazoo’s synth classic ‘Only You’ - already a popular number in their live set - & the cover versions are topped off with a sombre rendition of Mud’s 1974 hit, ‘Lonely This Christmas’. “hubbert’s ornate acoustic fingerpicking & flamenco flourishes are an ideal foil for moffat’s un-showy storytelling skills” 4/5 – mojo.
