They’re seemingly fully-formed; emerging suddenly with a pristine, spine-tingling song and a breathtaking video.
Where on earth have YOU come from?
And, with In Halves, the band is armed with a video to dazzle eyes, and a pristine, shiver-inducing song, pricked by singer Anna Waldmann’s pin-sharp voice.
So where on earth have YOU come from? Well, north London – but by the way of The Cocteau Twins, London Grammar, The XX and Daughter.
It’s a dazzling and confident first step for the North London band, whose early demos caught the keen ears of tastemakers Simon Raymonde and 6 Music’s Tom Robinson last year, before signing to Manchester’s MUK Records.
“One of the best debut singles I’ve heard in my time!” – Gary Crowley on In Halves
A beautiful, unique voice; a coiling, half-dream of a single; a video hinting at end times. What’s not to love?
Keep your eyes and ears open for YOU…
