They just released opening track THE BOY AND THE THIEF
as their new single, accompanied by a live-ly video clip.
Jess Guise about the track: “Sometimes writing a song is like carving a sculpture or fishing by the side of a very still lake, but sometimes it’s just like being given a present that you have to unwrap really quickly before it disappears. This was the latter; it started forming in my head on a long walk home one day and I had to run home to get it written before I forgot it. It’s about a friend of mine who was having no luck in love, and how we both consistently made terrible choices… The video is a tongue in cheek tour video aiming to capture the spirit of friendship, adventure and honesty that’s behind the band.”
Frisky and enchanting harmonies shine on The Boy And The Thief
(actually, the voices are the stars all over the album). Like two singing
nightingales enjoying their flight up high in the sky.
