New videos from Carousel

Back in January, we recorded a few live videos at Blackburn College for the Art and Music website. We posted a three-song session a few months ago, but we found time to record a couple of extra songs too. Both of the following songs appear on our recent album Carousel.

And here's the video for Sparklers:

Hope you enjoy the videos!
