Songs With Long Titles

So it has been four years since our last album. We have been winnowing down the stories that we would like to tell and twelve new tunes made the cut. Taking badly recorded demos and some wildly inaccurate charts to Damien Gerard Studio in Gosford, Australia we spent four days recording and knocking together arrangements into some kind of shape. Many of the musicians who played on the first record kindly agreed to go around again and try and make sense of what we had. We had a few base principles. No samples, no Click, no Grid and no Autotune. Everything on the album was performed live by a musician. Our drummer was our click track. The whole album was recorded to 2” tape and then digitized into Pro Tools. The whole process was a lot of fun and hopefully that comes across in the music and the performance and in the behind the scenes videos that we will be releasing.


We were looking for a high fi, harmonically interesting sound that would live up to all of the great records made by our heroes. Its up to you to decide whether we succeeded.


The album releases on streaming services on the 22nd of January. If you are interested in a vinyl copy let us know. If we get enough interest we will print a run of 200 gatefold 180 gram vinyl LP’s for all of us who still love our turntables.

Where Is The Light // Extra Time

A prison without walls

Has no doors

So how do I escape

The prison I create

A canvas without paint

Is a journey unexplored

So how do I break free

From the life I abhor

Where is the light 

That turn my night into day

That cuts through the darkness

To show me the way

Where is the light

A mind that's locked by fear

Is a cypher without code

Trapped within a loop

Waiting to explode

A maze within a mind

Has no path

So where are the breadcrumbs

To lead me back to hope

Where is the light 

That turns my night into day

That cuts through the darkness

To show me the way

Where is the light

Where is the light

That shines for me

A light in the darkness

To show me the way

Where is the light
