Klay sits down on a Little Brown Couch

Little Brown Couch, a really cool video project supporting local artists, just published a video they made with us last week. It's a brand new song called Come to Rest that none of you have heard yet, so we hope you enjoy it!

Many thanks to the Little Brown Couch team, we had a great time shooting this video and are really pleased with how it turned out. Click here for more information as well as some pics from the shoot.

New single: Holding On

We are very excited to announce the release of our very first single! It's called Holding On, and you can buy it on iTunes and on several other online stores.

The waiting is over. After a few years of writing, recording, rewritingโ€ฆ we finally have our first song that you can purchase. :) Holding On is one of our newer songs and is a good representation of where we stand right now as a band. After playing live a lot for over a year and recording lots of demos, we have a pretty clear idea of what we want.

Recording at Tonladen Studios

The timing couldn't have been better when Tonladen Studios offered to record a single with us. They understood what we are about immediately. Crazy ideas, like recording the drums with just one mic, had as hooked right from the start! We want thank all the guys there for their great work. We had a really good time recording in a relaxed atmosphere and with great equipment.
 

We think we did a good job capturing the energy and emotion that happens in our live performances on this recording. We hope you feel the same way. Let us know what you think!

Below are a few pictures from our time in the studio. 

Where to download Holding On

New songs online

We're super excited to tell you that we just uploaded some new demo songs to Soundcloud, so check 'em out on our music page!

Holding On and No More are very stripped-down, with just guitar, bass, cajon and vocals, and we think they sound great :) Let it out has been on our front page a while now already, so maybe you've heard it. It's more fleshed-out, with drums, some extra guitars and lots of backing vocals.

We hope you enjoy our songs and stay tuned for more new stuff.

Feel free to share our songs and post comments, if you're on Soundcloud you can follow us there as well ;)
