Released: 2nd Feb 2018


led by morris’ breathy staccato vocals, The London-based band weaves a windswept energy & daylight to a contemplative, gorgeously rendered suite of folk songs about inhabiting the landscape, & our bodies, in joy & pain alike.

recorded largely live in the studio, this is the band’s most emotionally affecting yet: atmospheric but deeply rooted, equally concerned with investigating the concrete & the cosmic, both quiet details of the everyday & looming matters of faith. “each song that makes up this album is a coming together of pain & love, selves & others, embraced together in the same broken heart, which is moving-joy & still-sad.” – david morris. If you like lal & mike waterson, fairport convention or hiss golden messenger, this will be right up your street. “a folk sound that is crisp & elaborate, adorned with curlicues of fiddle & shimmering piano chords” 8/10 – uncut.
