Great Gulfs finds the band in mellowed mood in a track that winds gently though the room as though borne on fluffy pillows and initially invites the listener to step shoulder to shoulder with a partner, though as the song develops so the embrace becomes ever more tenderly close.

The retrospective melody of the track, which glides elegantly through the room, wraps the audience in a sense of warm, cushioned serenity towards the world around.

Yesterday, from a forthcoming EP, the track Creep In The Door was released as a standalone single (available on bandcamp).

A very different mood to the rock influenced track Tell Me Why, previously featuredCreep In The Door is an extended free-form jazz number that has an extemporised air in to which a funky-soul swagger is pitched giving the composition an easy gait alongside the more angular structures of the jazz tinctures and resulting in a track of multiple dimensions and tempo.

The latest single to be released Citizen is a decent introduction to an outfit who deliver a sound that is able to unify audiences with different musical tastes including those who may initially contemplate jazz as ‘not their thing’.

The swaggering jazz is tempered by funky hip-dips delivered in an easy to engage tempo and as the track develops so the listeners discover themselves becoming more fully engaged.
