🎈LIVE SESSION ON RADIO 1. Thanks to the lovely Huw Stephens for playing two tracks we recorded live for BBC Music Introducing/BBC Radio 1 last week, as part of the SXSW British Music Embassy line-up. Grab yourself a bean toasty and listen back to our rendition of 'Juliet' + a BRAND NEW TRACK. 💁🏻
🎈ON A WARM SUMMER'S EVENING, after a long day of recording album tracks, James headed out into a field to sing an acoustic version of 'Juliet' as the last rays of sunlight faded. (Disclaimer: no wheat was harmed in the making of this video. Take note, Theresa May.) 🌾
🎈TOUR TOUR TOUR. Unlike certain Texan festivals, this one IS happening - and in October when we'll all be quarantine-free and have plenty of loo roll. Join us, Deco and Sad Boys Club as we make our way to you! 🚐

🎈LEEDS STYLUS - we're buzzing to add a Leeds Fest Piccadilly Party x BBC Introducing DJ showdown as part of our Leeds University Union Stylus show, Sat Nov 30th. Danny Oliver, Dave Birkinshaw and Adam Winch-Furness will be battling it out on the decks between bands - oh, and did we mention it's Oli's birthday?! 🎉
