BBC 6music play Sunflower - the ‘BBC introducing Mixtape’ on 6music played ‘Sunflower’ from our debut album this morning, being described as ‘An ambitious and expansive pop song with a chorus that embeds itself in the back of your mind, some impressive orchestration, and a glorious climax which, I can testify, is impossible not to join in with’. As listeners to ‘Your Heart Is A Weapon The Size Of Your Fist’ will know, lead vocals on this one are handled by the lovely Charlotte Austen. The album has raised over £2,000 for the MIND mental health charity and is available from our shop. - Stu.
BBC 6 Music Interview - Stu was the guest on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music show last night - talking about Billy Bragg’s love of the ‘Bullingdon Club’ single, Sid Griffin from Maconie and Radcliffe Show calling it the ‘best power pop single in 5 years’ and other nonsense. We’ll be doing 4 songs live in session on Bethan Elfyn’s show on BBC Wales on 22nd April and 3 songs in session on Nick Robert’s BBC introducing Newcastle show so look out for those.
