The music speaks for itself. It has no agenda. The only thing it's born from is a desire to be true to itself. It's a musical union of dark tones electronic beats, radio penetrating melodic structures, interweaving acoustic and electric guitar and taking on a sonic and lyrical journey with every beat.
We also have 2 new dates in the calendar. 21st July at Campbell Park in Milton Keynes, and 25th August at Hobbles On The Cobbles in Aylesbury. We are also working on an extra date during the Fish support tour for May 24th, which we hope to announce later this week.

A message from Lu:
It has indeed been a fair ole wait for a follow up album to be born and take its first intake of breath in to the big wide world. I am immensely grateful to all you beautiful people for your patience and generosity of spirit - hanging on in there with us.
I do believe a brief explanation is due …
Several years ago I read Eleanor Roosevelt’s quote ‘Do one thing every day that scares you’. I think without knowing it, I put that to the test and scared the living b’jeez out of myself! Foreign lands beckoned, reeling me in to experience different tastes, sights and sounds. Teetering precariously on the edge of an emotional precipice, courage was the only option. I’m glad it was so, for only in that inner space, growth and a renewed desire for inner creative territories could be found, explored and conquered.
I’m sat here at my desk, transporting myself into memories of that time away; photo slides in my mind of where I’ve been and all those wonderful souls I’ve met along the way. They bring a smile to my face and a wave of pure gratitude.
Some of these snap shots I’ll impart to you .
There’ve been folklore moments I’ve shared with eight foot high Marionettes and dancing Princess’s from far reaching provinces. I’ve tangoed with clowns and doglike caricatures, jumped through hoops with acrobatic cowboys, through spaghetti western frontiers on the back of mobile lorries in sun filled, summer scented, green parks and spaces. Consoled in the dead of night, a bear with a sore head and listened, attentive, to his ancient lament; encountered palinca induced camp fire joviality with friends old and new. I’ve been bill-boarded on underground tube stations, rags and glossies, airwaves and telly. Show cased song, story and truth with like-minded creators of jazz, rock and blues. I’ve interviewed and nattered with stars and elite and moved by the harsh journeys of helpless babes, the destitute and down trodden.
It sounds like a far-fetched children’s book and I wouldn’t blame you if it has crossed your mind as so. It’s all factual a magnificently strange, funny, extraordinarily fruitful period of my life with highs and lows beyond measure.
Creativity can take many shapes and forms and so too can life and its lessons. They have been the highlight of my existence. An awakening …
The unveiling of a new chapter, a new album, new textures and life force will be announced shortly.
The adventurous journey continues without further ado.
