about

After College Rock, our latest EP features a range very different bittersweet love songs culled from one of music's most diverse decades-the 1980s. With such wide parameters to choose from, it was more challenging than ever to focus down on four songs, but the lyrical narrative within the collection we finally chose seemed to work well.

The EP then includes a loving re-working of Strawberry Switchblade's seminal underground pop song "Since Yesterday", a breathless foot-stomp through Primal Scream's "Velocity Girl" (replacing the jangle guitars with recorders), a take on one of our favourite 80s film and music moments-OMD's "If You Leave" (as used in 'Pretty in Pink') and finally-a re-imaging of the Tanita Tikaram album track "Valentine Heart"-replacing her vocals with Katie and Grace's two part harmonies over accordion and auto harp in a rare reflective moment for us.
