Written over the course of the last three tumultuous years as life, death, distance, divorce and everything else in between tried its best to pull the band apart. It retains the bands own personal sound of soaring strings, and crescendos with footing equally in rock, electronica and folk.The album was written largely by Tom (Vocals/guitar) and Adam (Drums/keys) sending countless demo’s to each other over several years.
The current band line-up is as follows:
Tom Morris - vocals, guitar, piano, synthesizer
Adam Weikert - drums, banjo, synthesizer, vocals
Sophie Green - violin, vocals
Nicole Robson - cello, vocals
Tiernan Welch - bass, vocals
