Tell us about your latest release:
We hope people enjoy listening to our EP (self titled) the whole way through as we make an effort to keep things musically interesting for us and the audience. Some tracks are more bluesy while others are more prog rock based. We think we really have achieved a good amount of versatility within the four tracks. Can’t wait to hear what people think!
