Promises, Promises: new single, 18 July 2011
The first single from our forthcoming album will be available as a free download on Monday 18 July.
'Promises, Promises' is a flurry of sweeping violins, girl group harmonies and bittersweet summertime lyrics about casual promises that never materialise. The violins were played by Matthew and Claire from A Little Orchestra, who also play on several other songs on our new album. Have a listen here:
