Out today on Forward Music (North America) and SeaYou (Europe), Gun Shy is an introspective piece centring on what happens when we shut ourselves off from others. There’s some really beautiful string work on there from Pemi Paull (viola), Sebastian Chow (violin) and Sage Reynolds (double bass) and the track was recorded by Andy Magoffin, Edo Van Breemen and Steven Newton and mixed by Dean Nelson (Beck, Thurston Moore).

UK band show first tickets!
This September and October we’ll be touring the new album across Europe – over the coming weeks and months I’ll be sharing tourdates with you. I’m so pleased to finally be bringing the band to the UK and the first ever band shows will be in London at the Hackney Empire Bar and in Norwich at the Louis Marchesi – snap them tickets up while you can!
