We’ve been gigging continuously around Scotland for the last couple years, headlining the likes of King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and supporting other upcoming indie artists like Flight Brigade and Chris Staples. We recently released our debut, self-produced album ‘Swim or Sink’, and we’re inspired by artists like Arcade Fire, Sun Kil Moon, Sigur Ros, The National, and fellow Scots Mogwai and Frightened Rabbit.

Sam Begbie is a folk songwriter drawing on an eclectic resevoir of influences. His songs, though sweet and ballad-like in form, are presented with a hard vocal edge which reaches across the Atlantic and finds its roots among singers like Blind Willie Johnson and Howlin’ Wolf. Sam and Joe formed their musical partnership early in 2017, playing a series of highly acclaimed and successful shows throughout Glasgow and Paisley. With Joe’s expressive and driving percussive style the boys are set for great things. Forwards, not backwards; upwards, not forward; and always twirling towards freedom!
