And the winner is…

We’re delighted and honoured to have recieved a Best Album of 2017 award from the German Record Critics panel – Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik. This means a lot to us –  not only was it was voted by a transparent panel of experts, but winners in other categories included Kate Tempest, Ennio Morricone and the Rolling Stones! It will certainly stand us in good stead when we make our maiden trip to Germany in September.


Our new EP ‘Slaves’ has been released on Westpark. This features the title track (taken from Death and Other Animals), a live version of the same, plus a live version of Thresherman, the radio edit of One More Day, and a waltz set hitherto unreleased in any form. We’ll be performing some of these tracks live on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music show on Saturday 25th February.
