We had a listen to Burnstick   taken from the album:

A repetitive orangey sound vibrates through the sozzled air as the simple rhythms get a stranglehold of you… And they won’t let go.

And although, lyrically, this is all about a sentimental hankering for something that just ain’t there… There is also a hidden optimism amongst all the jangles.

This is unruffled and lustrous dream rock with angelic vocals and plenty of unspoken yet pent-up passion.
