Summer 2018

Wilderness Festival 2018

Wilderness Festival 2018

It's been a great summer! And we're not just talking about the scorching weather. Firstly, our third time back at the beautiful La Mortella on the island of Ischia, Italy. A knockout few days once again playing in such an amazing setting, eating delicious fresh Italian food, and enjoying some sunny island life. Hopefully it won't be long before we're back once again.

Secondly, thanks to everyone who came and saw our set at Wilderness Festival in August (above), what a brilliant crowd! We had a really fantastic time and it was a pleasure to be part of the festival. Next up for us is the London Jazz Festival in November. Always great to be included in the programme for this, and one that's close to our hearts as we played our first ever gig at the LJF back in 2014! As ever, there's so much going on in the programme but if you're free Nov 21st then we'll be at the Vortex jazz club in Dalston so grab a ticket now (here's a link).

In other news our album is coming along very nicely indeed. A few of us went for a mixing session the other day back at Air Studios where we recorded, and it's sounding ace! Just a few more tweaks and it'll be there. Hopefully we'll be releasing it sometime around the beginning of 2019, with possibly a little tour to go alongside it, so as always keep your eyes and ears peeled. We can't wait to share it with you!

We'll update here when necessary, but to keep up with the very very latest follow us on Facebook and Instagram and you won't miss anything. For now, here's a super sneak peak of Liam Dunachie's 'Mr Pottercakes' from our recent mixing session!
