Their first gig in over 2 years will be at The CCA in Glasgow on the 27th of February. First chance to hear the new songs too I imagine.

They played 3 new songs. I recorded a couple of them so I'll post them later. They were all pretty upbeat, confident and poppy sounding and certainly sounded good for a first listen anyway.
It was a great gig and you'd never have guessed it had been over 2 years since they played.

Only recorded those two I'm afraid. Third one was called 'Do It Again' and was very poppy. More in the style of the first one.

just heard "do it again" on the radio and to be honest I wasn't very keen ... it might grow on me, but I found it a little bit Camera Obscura by numbers which is a disappointment after those last two brilliant albums ...
