Y’know when you only meet someone briefly but your solid judge of character tells you they’re a good, honest person and that in time you’ll be close friends and somewhere much further down the line you would (maybe) consider sharing a chocolate bar with them? Well, I’m getting that feeling with the year 2018, which is fortunate for me because I’m fairly certain that it doesn’t eat chocolate.

At the end of January, BBC introducing invited us down to the legendary Maida Vale studios to record four songs for the lovely Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1. Now, that’s a sentence I didn’t think I’d be writing any time soon. A huge thank you is in order to Simon, George, Rhona and the brilliant film crew for smashing it out the park from start to finish. We...

BIG LOVE Huw Stephens and his crack BBC Radio 1 team Abbie McCarthy and Jacob Rickard for having us in and playing tracks from our BBC Music Introducing Maida Vale session each night this week! 🎈

For the next few weeks, you can listen to our interview with Huw here.

New year, new blog. 💁🏼

Let's get the pleasantries out of the way first. Hope you all had a great Christmas and new year! Naaaaaaaaat (jk).  

Glad that's over with. 

Sooooooooo.... We released a music video in December for Throw Ourselves In. If you haven't seen it yet, you can watch it below. This was the most fun video we've shot to date, and it was an honour to work with such talented people on it. 

We reconvened early in the new year with our new socks, deodorant and 2018 Cliff Richard calendars to get back on with operation Marsicans. 

The start of 2018 has been spent holed up in the studio recording some NEW MUSIC. And I don't know, MAYBE the next time we write a blog, there MIGHT MAYBE POSSIBLY be a new song out. Maybe. 

We had an absolute bl...

"Sounds like a number one single, that." - Huw Stephens
"He’s a good lad, isn’t he, that Huw Stephens?" - James’ dad.

…and so the bumble bee licked the cat, flew into a tree, stole the marshmallow and fled the scene. Was mental… Oh sorry! Hi there, person reading this blog, that was just…um…I was just telling a…thing. Never mind.

This blog goes back a bit to when James and Rob went to that little bash known as Glastonbury. I wasn’t jealous. Nah, I wasn’t. Why do you think I’m jealous? I’m not. Stop shaking your head at me. I don’t care. Don’t wanna talk about it now, not ‘cause I’m jealous, just you upset me. They said it was great. I suppose it would have been better if I was there… They both then went to the Maccabees’ final tour dates, which is a rubbish thought that it was their final gigs. Hopefully they all hit their heads and want to reform next year.


RADIO 1. Shout out to Huw Stephens for giving Too Good its BBC Radio 1​ debut last night - and to John Kennedy of Radio X for giving the song its first national spin in the UK on Monday. We bleddy love you, guys!🎈
