YOU'VE BEEN A BLAST, 2018! Thanks to all of you for helping make it our best year yet. Let's all go out and majestically ride 2019! 🎉🎈
We've pulled together some of our personal highlights from the past 12 months below....
In January, we were lucky enough to be invited to the iconic BBC Maida Vale Studios London for a live session. It's safe to say we'd never been as collectively nervous/excited when we walked in. We set up and ran through the songs a few times before the cameras rolled and were in a room doing some vocal warm-ups when someone popped their head round the door and told us that the piano James was sat at was played by none other than Sir Paul McCartney himself on the Beatles' Maida Vale session. It was genuinely one of...

It’s been announcement after announcement for us, with a bunch of festivals, new and previously played, all being announced throughout March and April, and it makes us very excited to be out in Pat with our sunglasses on to protect our eyes from the rain. Notable mention...
I'm writing this month's blog drinking a glass of ice cold water with a wedge (not a slice) of lemon in a pub by myself. Why? Because I forgot my keys and I don't have any money on me. And it's raining. There's a half-melted candle, some fairy lights draped across the room and the Scissor Sisters playing on the system. Quite a fitting place to reminisce on our latest adventures.
WE RELEASED A VIDEO. It was for our single Too Good. We teamed up with our good friend Ben Hale who directed the video, Harry Bojakowski who lit us up beautifully, and four amazing dancers (big up Liv, Shawn, Rose and Beth). Big thanks to everyone involved, anyone who lent us a TV, and an even bigger thanks to whichever 80s weatherman provided me with yellow blazer I wor...
