So…it is with much pleasure and just a little pride that we present to you our new album, Close Your Eyes and See, released March 3rd and available for pre-order from today as a digital download or deluxe double-gatefold digipack CD from our Bandcamp shop.
Those of you keeping count will have noticed it’s been over a decade since we released an album of new material. We hope it's been worth the wait and that you enjoy the dreamlike torch songs, bruised ballads and otherworldly rockers we’ve spent the last few years creating.
Producer Dan Luscombe has done an ace job creating atmospheric soundscapes out of long, reverby trails of pedal steel, tremolo guitar, violin and keyboards. The results, we think, are lush, beautiful and mysterious.
Close Your Eyes and See is our response to the often wonderful and sometimes woeful world we live in - an appeal to keep your dreams alive, even when it feels as if you’re living in a nightmare. If the outside world poses difficult questions, well the answers may just lie within.
But don’t take our word for it. Close your eyes and see.
PS: You can listen to the opening track, Dream On, right now. Yours to download immediately on pre-order of the album.
