Adventure (2016)

 

"...a distinctly British sound inspired by Deram, Vertigo and the kind of brainy pop that was played in the evenings on Radio 1 at the turn of the '70s. Cinematic, musically interesting and ambitious." ☆☆☆

"'Adventure' continues the same pop-perfection as the previous two outings with the title track, 'Desert Drive' and 'What Are You For She Said' being prime examples of the sheer quality of song writing from this multi-talented duo."

Graham Lentz, New Untouchables

"' This London duo has clearly come of age on a steady diet of Magical Mystery Tour-era Beatles, Arthur-era Kinks, Small Faces circa Ogden's Nut Gone Flake and other fine influences. But there's a pleasing DIY sensibility that suggests Cleaners From Venus with a larger budget."

Bill Kopp, Musoscribe

"A kaleidoscopic musical journey, it's juxtaposition of styles and textures acts as a soundtrack to an as yet un-made movie, taking in soul, psych, rock, country and more, all held together via the pairs' pleasing harmonies..."

"Fans of Steely Dan, Pete Atkin, The Kinks and all forms of brainy pop from then and now will adore this 10 track set. Pop music lives!

"...the kind of song suite Ray Davies might have made during the 1970s as the soundtrack for a made for TV special. Factor in some Everly Brothers' harmonies and some pre-fame Bowie folk-rock and you have a winning sound right there. But it's the meticulously crafted songs and cinematic sweep of story that impress the most."

"...attractively moulded close-harmony sound with it's echoes of Simon & Garfunkel and gently progressive aura...this enigmatic twosome deserve to be heard more widely" 

David Kidman, FATEA

"The sound of those great British songwriters...think Kevin Ayres, think Ray Davies, The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and Syd Barrett, but also think of progressive folk and prog groups such as Fairport Convention... The timing of this autumnal and sometimes wintry collection is perfect, and if you knew no better, you'd never guess these words weren't written for the songs that now house them"

   She Was Just An Opportunist (2013)

 

"...an unmistakably British record...it's eccentric, quirky nature means this won't be an album that appeals to one and all, but those who are open to something a little different will find plenty to be enjoyed here"
