Sorry we have been away for a while folks! But woah there, don't worry, we have just been busy! And here we are, back and ready to share our adventures with you!
We have been very fortunate in the past year to have had the opportunity to collaborate with some wonderful people in an exciting project called "The Free Instruments for Teenagers Project". This is a one-off project in both art and music started by international artist, Ross Sinclair. In collaboration with The Collective Art Gallery here in Edinburgh, Ross held an exhibition, and as part of this exhibition there were a set of instruments. Bands were given the opportunity to enter into the project and the five winning bands received a set of the instruments; we were one of the lucky bands!
As the project has gone on, two of the bands have broken up and we are now left with three. We have been working with the Collective Gallery and with Ross Sinclair on artwork and music throughout the past few months, which leads us on to the exiting bit! COLOURED VINYL & A GIG IN AN ART GALLERY! Each band, along with Ross Sinclair, has put together a mini artwork and recorded a few tracks for a 12" coloured LP, which will be released at a gig held at the Collective Gallery itself. This has been an amazing opportunity for us and the most exciting stuff is yet to come!
We have recorded three tracks for the record; MACHINE, Forgetting Frank and Keeley Hawes. We got our mixes recently and can't wait to share the finished thing with you all!
Here is also a sneak peak at our art which will feature on the inside of the gatefold!
We will keep you up to date with release dates etc. and we hope you will come along to the gig! The gig is currently pencilled in for October 31st, however this could change, so stay tuned!
Dust those record players 'cause the grooves are being pressed as we speak!
We will be answering some questions that people have on this blog.
