about

An absurdist-logico mix of Euro pop, Beat poetry, and subterranean lo-fi adventuring.

Available on 180gm limited edition vinyl and on CD from www.fishriderrecords.com and www.occultation.co.uk

“The new wave of New Zealand pop begins here....it’s remarkable, leaping from sea-sick waltzes and crunchy post-punk to ADD-pop (see the hyper opener “La Rat”) 4/5 Uncut

“The kind of half-melted, buckled pop that suggests they’ve just re-entered earth’s atmosphere after a long strange trip away... Opposite Sex attract rather than repel.” Q

"It's absolutely brilliant...I absolutely adore it. It's going to be in my top five albums of the year definitely." Marc Riley, BBC 6Music

Track Name: A Year on Your Own
A Year on Your Own

This rat he is mean friend a cat friend of me
He is grey and he lives on Rum Road
Don’t say his name because this rat isn’t tame
He is free

So, what if you spent a year on your own
Would you think that the world was gone
I think we all got it wrong. I think we all got it wrong

Cars are passing incredibly fast
Makes me feel like I’m made out of glass
I think we all got it wrong. I think we all got it wrong

So I spent an hour staring at a chair
To turn around turn around and find it wasn’t there
Knew there was something inconsistent
But I think I might have missed it
That is why I should be more aware

So I spent an hour staring at a chair
To turn around turn around and find it wasn’t there
Knew there was something inconsistent
But I think I might have missed it
That is why I should be more aware

So I dug a hole outside: it was three feet wide
I put myself inside: saw a place to hide

This rat he is mean friend a cat friend of me
He is grey and he lives on Rum Road
Don’t say his name because this rat isn’t tame
He is me

So, what if you spent a year on your own
Would you think that the world was wrong
I think we all got it wrong. I think we all got it wrong

Cars are passing incredibly fast
Makes me feel like I’m made out of glass
I think we all got it wrong. I think we all got it wrong

So I spent an hour staring at a chair
To turn around turn around and find it wasn’t there
Knew there was something inconsistent
But I think I might have missed it
That is why I should be more aware

So I dug a hole outside: it was three feet wide
And put myself inside: for a place to hide
