Inspired by the storytelling theatrics of Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman and spellling, with twiddling guitars, drum-machines and vocal flights fluttering, their tender songcraft glistens with folkish charm and ambrosial melodia. 

 Core to maintaining their DIY ethos and playful nature, the band plan to release works in a range of mediums in their multidisciplinary approach, with paintings, set design, soundscapes, costumes, short films, masks, animation, puppetry and theatrical plays all set to come alongside. As with Act 1, this approach continues with the ‘Gymnopédie’, video which has been  self-shot, self-directed and self-produced by the band via their art collective ‘My Life is Big’ and again vocalist Ike Gray has provided the hand-painted artwork for the EP.
