1. Best Of Times

2. Rip It Up

3. Brian Wilson

4. Being Human

the type of pop sensibility associated with Edwyn Collins.

- The Scotsman

"...Steven is a naturally beautiful performer, with a talent and voice coming across so effortless and yet so graceful. "

- Music News Review

The singing, musicianship and production (courtesy of Iain Macpherson) on the album are consistently impressive. But more than the sum of their parts are the songs themselves they are heartfelt, warm, sumptuous and little bit maudlin; perfect from those introspective autumnal moments

- Trend Magazine

Steven has shared the stage with acts such as Lightspeed Champion, Malcolm Middleton, Simple Kid, Frightened Rabbit, The Rumblestrips, Ed Harcourt, Electric Soft Parade, Eugene McGuiness and The Wave Pictures.

Had a listen and a lookie of the video earlier.

Really like all the tracks on the EP and the video is pretty cool. Really like the artwork too!

Best of Times and Being Human are probably better than the other two (in my opinion).

Really looking forward to the album.

Thanks for the kind words Callum.

Being Human is a pared down, different keyed version of the song Human Being from the Album and in hindsight i like it better than the album version but theyre very different.

Glad you liked it.

Changs artwork is nice too!

Its been a positive week for the single release...

Firstly, I confirmed a gig in Berlin for October which will be amazing.

Details to follow I guess.

Secondly, Edwyn Collins himself gave us the approval for our Rip it Up cover by describing it as "properly funky" and tweeting about it!

And Thirdly, nice little blog site Cat on the Wall have included Best of Times on their podcast alongside the Twilight Sad, Maps + Atlases and Low Sea.
