HEAVY SOUTH /// AVAILABLE JANUARY 19

We are very happy to announce that our new record, “Heavy South,” will be released this January. We’ve been working on this one for quite a while and couldn’t be more excited to finally share it with you. “Heavy South” fixates on circular patterns – work weeks, weather patterns, daily exchanges. The album will be available on vinyl, CD, and the usual digital platforms. You can hear a brand new track called “Horse’s Mouth” and pre-order “Heavy South” via our bandcamp:

More cool stuff soon!
