‘In early 2018 they started work on their debut album with producer Iain Copeland (Peatbog Faeries, Sketch). Working from Iain’s studio on the shores of Skye’s Loch Dunvegan, the band have developed their sound to meet the demands of an album release.
The emergence of Lissa as the lead vocalist has been a key development. Her powerful, soulful voice features on more than half of the tracks on ‘Artefacts’. The band have also expanded their musical pallet to incorporate elements of hip-hop, jazz, breakbeats and drum and bass, while still referencing the house and techno beats which defined their earlier output. The result is an album which pays as much respect to the conventions of dance music as it does to the performances of the musicians, taking in a wonderful variety of genres and styles, while keeping one eye firmly fixed on the dancefloor’.
Formed in 2013 by Lewis and Calum and joined by Lissa and Ali in 2016 they have forged ahead with building a large fan base not only locally but nationally -giging from Knoydart to Lindisfare from festivals to solo gigs, having shared stages with Scottish Trad acts such Shooglenifty and The Treacherous Orchestra and bands such as Avocet /DopeSickFly / BassFace / Busker Rhymes to name but a few . They have taken a steady 18 months to bring this highly anticipated album to fruition.
