It’s 2013 somehow, and we are writing this post to you from Chem19 studios, where we started recording our debut album yesterday!
We kept our bonces down in 2012 after we released Duck!, squirrelling away tunes, and were lucky enough to receive funding from Creative Scotland to record our album with Paul Savage. Our pals at Comets and Cartwheels will be putting it out in the Autumn. Can’t. Wait.
We’ve also shoogled the line-up about a bit, we say a fond farewell Sorren from our live line-up, since he is a very busy boy, and welcome Stewart Brock to the fold, flexing his vocal chords and tinkling the ivories.
Over Christmas the label made a wee festive video of new song ‘Cheek By Jowl’, which you can watch below!

Lots of exciting things are happening so I’m going to tell you about all of them like you’re my mum and you just picked me up from a birthday party and I relay every detail of the last 3 hours back to you including who won each individual party game and what the pass the parcel prize was and what kind of cake they had (Spice Girls cake would be most desirable obvs).
So mum, MUUUM. Are you listening??! We’re supporting Kate Nash on the Scottish leg of her tour at the weekend which is really exciting because I really like her songs and her haircut. She was someone who made me feel that I should sing in my own accent, rather than a trans-atlantic twang, so props to her for that. Can’t decide if I should tell her this and sound like a creepy sycophant, or act all aloof and pretend I’ve never heard of her. Will probably opt for the latter, but we’ll see where the nerves take me. Tickets for Inverness, Aberdeen and Glasgow available at www.gigsinscotland.com.
And then guess what, guess what? Our friends TYCI are having another party thing and WE’RE INVITED to play some songs with some lovely ladies (including Siobhan Wilson, Jo Mango and Kirsten Innes) at Oxfam Music on Byres Road on 20th April for Record Store Day. And I really want to go because all of the cool girls are into gender equality and I want to be too mum, aww pleeasee? Details via the link:

And and and, in May we’ve also been invited to play at Stag and Dagger so we’ll have to buy them a present to and Brew at the Bog too, and I bet both of their parties are AMAZING because I heard Stag and Dagger had a pet pony when she was younger and Brew at the Bog had all kinds of cool stuff at her party last year so I bet the goody bags will be full of proper good prizes like maybe even a BEANIE BABY or something. Tickets still available for both events!

No I haven’t had that many sweets mum, why are you asking me that? What’s a sugar high? I only had 3 bags of Haribo. Anyway our final news is that OUR ALBUM IS CURRENTLY GETTING MASTERED by Mr. Iain Cook of CHVRCHES. So it’s nearly done and ready! Which means that I can stop talking and tuck into this birthday cake now. Even though it’s been wrapped up in a napkin and has been sweating inside a poly bag for an hour or so. IT TASTES BETTER THAT WAY.
Hopefully see some of you at those events! Keep your ears to the ground for more announcements soon too.
