Thank you to everyone at Fusion Festival for making us feel so welcome, we were totally blown away by the support that you showed us yesterday. Thanks of course go to Steve & Lou for the invitation, and also to all the volunteers who helped us and made our day easy!
Huge thanks too if you bought our albums, we hope that you love the music as much as we enjoyed making it. It was wonderful meeting you all and we loved the friendly & supportive vibes of Fusion 4.
Such a beautiful night last week supporting the legendary xPropaganda at one of our favourite venues, the Boerderij in Zoetermeer. Thanks to Arie and all of the crew for making this a really special gig for us. Photos by Eus Driessen.
We’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be performing at Fusion 4 Festival on 5 March 2023. We previously did a set at their virtual festival during lockdown so it’ll be great to finally appear in person!
Check out the beautiful video for our forthcoming single ‘Persephone’ exclusively on Prog.
The single, which is released on April 23 on Eightspace Records, is taken from the our recently released album Dreamers Don’t Come Down.
“I was thinking about the awful dark shadow that was about to envelop the UK and felt sadness for the families who were losing loved ones and not able to be present,” says singer Farrah West. “I am aware of people who, facing death but living to tell the tale, have spoken of it as an actual person willing them on their final journey. I wanted to tell the story of the shadow looming, but to seek out and focus on the light rather than the darkness. We were thinking about how to talk about death without using the actual word and settled on Persephone, who was the unwilling wife of Hades and the queen of the underworld in Greek mythology. It seemed a slightly more poetic way of singing about the topic.”
She continues: “Rich had a piece of music that seemed a bit too jolly for such a serious set of lyrics, but actually turned out to be perfect and stopped the whole song sounding morbid. I call it the jaunty song about death but it has this amazing energy to it and I really can’t wait to play it live.”
Dreamers Don’t Come Down is available on CD and as a digital download. A vinyl version is available through Plane Groovy Records.
