about

Their new and third EP, Sleeptalking, encapsulates how much they and their music have grown over the past year with a fuller, more cinematic soundscape and reflective feel. Strings play a prominent part and their storytelling lyrics have a more powerful drive than previous EPs, from the anger of Green Eyed and defiance of What If, to the affirmation on Only When We Sleep all coming to a beautiful close with the closing lullaby track, Silent Conversations.

Their music is intimate yet powerful, haunting yet uplifting, described by Tom Robinson on BBC6 radio as an “emotional cannonball”. They combine elements of Sharon van Etten, Laura Veirs, Feist and Elbow to create a sound that is organic and unique.

Track Name: Green Eyed
Green-eyed, by your side
My smile hides, what's inside
Firefight, every night
We're so uptight, need to be right

We fall through all
The worlds that we made
Inside our minds
We hide

Up close, you see the holes
It's our ghosts we fear the most
Feel in the air words that weren't there
We never dared, killed by our cares

We fall through all
The worlds that we made
Inside our minds
We hide

We fall behind, misread the signs
Scared of time, we draw the line

We fall through all
The worlds that we made
Inside our minds
We hide
Track Name: What If
What if you changed, what if I tried?
What if I lose my pride?
What if I'm wrong, what if you're right?
Nobody wins this fight
What if I stay, what if you go?
Nobody needs to know
What if it's lies, what if it's true?
It's between me and you

Is this the end, is this the start?
Are they that far apart?
Is this our fate, is this our choice
Or is it just empty noise?
If I can't move, if I can't feel
Does it sill count as real?
If I can't speak, if I can't breathe
Maybe it's time to leave

We lost all faith
By playing safe for a while
We lost our place
And found our way

Is this our chance, is this our time?
Will it all work out fine?
Where do we go, where does this end?
Will there be time to mend
What if we run, what if we hide?
What will we leave behind?
What if it's great, what if it's not?
We'll give it all we've got!
Track Name: Is This It?
Maybe we're somewhere, or maybe we're not
And what if this somewhere is not what we thought?
Spent our lives trying to get here, didn't like what we got
But now that we've got here, seems the point's been forgot

Maybe we'll make it, or maybe we won't
But why live on in fear of what happens if we don't?
Who's to say if we've done right? What does anyone know?
Cos we're all in the same fight, far too scared to let go

And oh, but this can't last forever
So why do we run to the end?
While we keep on saying never
Lies are much easier to bend than break
Under all of this pressure
Something is starting to wake

Maybe it came here, and now maybe it's gone
We thought that we'd found it, but turned out to be wrong
Spent so long trying to see clear, everything had moved on
We've been chasing a shadow that was never that long

And oh, but this can't last forever
So why do we run to the end?
While we keep on saying never
Lies are much easier to bend than break
Under all of this pressure
Something is starting to wake
Track Name: Only When We Sleep
We go over all the things we did and said
Too many different voices echo in our heads
Sometimes it's hard just getting out of bed

It's only when we sleep
We don't feel so weak

These different stories tell themselves across the years
Familiar patterns in our worries and our fears
We measure out our lives in happiness and tears

It's only when we sleep
We don't feel so weak
And all of this will keep
So let's go back to sleep

Feels like falling, but we don't leave the ground
Hear it calling, with no sound

Another morning watching every minute pass
We hear the voices but we're not sure what they asked
We make ourselves a promise "This will be the last!"
The future disappears into the past
From now we'll let time begin
Stop caring if we lose our win
Don't think until we're too far in

It's only when we sleep
We don't feel so weak
And all of this will keep
So let's go back to sleep

Feels like falling but we don't leave the ground
Hear it calling, with no sound
Feels like falling, but we don't leave the ground
Hear it calling, with no sound

It's only when we sleep
Track Name: Silent Conversations
The silence now speaks a thousand words
That in endless conversations were never heard
Late at night, when the world's asleep
It's these silent conversations that we keep
And the world turns on around us as we sleep

Every story always ends
Every broken spirit mends
Close the door tight, let the world fight
Cos it's alright when we're here

The darkness now holds a thousand dreams
But when daylight comes they're nowhere to be seen
Late at night, as we lie awake
It's these tiny silent moments that we take
And we hold them tightly, trying not to break

Every story always ends
Every broken spirit mends
Close the door tight, let the world fight
Cos it's alright when we're here

Late at night, when the world's asleep
It's these silent conversations that we keep
And the world turns on around us as we sleep
