As outsiders from sleepy coastal towns on different coastlines, Stephen Fitzpatrick from Barrow in Furness and Norwegian Audun Laading met for the first time in Liverpool as students. The pair bonded over a love of peculiar, sardonic humour and wide eyed observations.
Stephen’s booming baritone and despondent manner is particularly distinctive, giving the band a striking aesthetic allied with Audun’s choppy bass lines and a relentless drum machine. An ever present jangling guitar pours over in sharp contrast resulting in a sound which feels deeply personal. Her’s are the closest of idiosyncratic partnerships formed from unlikely of circumstances.
Fittingly, the band have only played a handful of local shows but this first public offering will insure they step out of the shadows and present their unconventionality to the world.
“Dorothy” and b-side “What Once Was” are available on all streaming platforms from today (29th of April) and will be released on 50 limited edition hand-painted 7” vinyl, released on 6th May.
