The album entitled‘Music To Shake’n’Shuffle To is described as an “utterly splendid collection of psych-baroque-folk-pop-whateverness.

“It would be near impossible to place the band’s latest album within the confines of one single genre, so a concoction of poppy, doo-woppy, jazzy folk should suffice.

“Matt Cogley (from Preston) is influenced by the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Radiohead to Bon Iver and Ben Howard.

“His debut EP shows a diverse mix of songs with a focus on strong melody to stripped back vocal ambience.”

Later in the Month, on Thursday, September, the band plays London.
