Info on the release of our new EP – These are the dreams, This is the life. It is a collection of songs that explores the idea of the realisation that we are living and working in our dreams, not running towards them. Without getting too philosophical, it is the journey to what we seek that is the adventure. Basically, it is about living in the Now.
We look forward to people hearing it, and spreading it around as far and wide as possible. We will be doing a tour in Ireland and the UK to celebrate the release and hope you can make it! See the gig page for dates!
“These are the dreams, This is the life” gets straight to the point by kicking the door open with ‘Over Again, an infectious, swinging track.”
