about

We recorded these demos in less than 3 hours on a rainy Saturday morning in October 2012, and then they were mixed and mastered over the course of the afternoon. The budget for recording was £120 which doesn't allow much time for mistakes, and meant that all of the tracks were captured in full, first take. We we're all in the same room playing as if we were live, so there was a lot of bleed between the various microphones, but overall this results in quite an accurate mix of how we sounded in the room at that moment.

Early Morning Rain, Since You Went Away and Love & Poison were re-recorded as part of our debut self titled EP in 2014,but the original versions are included here as bonus tracks.

Beautiful is one of our oldest songs, but despite this it has only ever been played once live. The version here was recorded after the rest of the EP (in Ben's spare bedroom, mixed on a Hi-Fi in true DIY style), but is included as a bonus track.
