Thanks Muff Fitzgerald for this lovely review. Well more of a full-on psychoanalysis of Phil really.
“Looking into Langran’s brain is rather like looking into the Chauvet Cave with a torch. Marvels that shimmer with great beauty are painted on the walls of his occipital lobe, reflected in the flickering flames of his calming songs. Beautiful plumes rise and billow with the wind and then disperse like motes of dust. Just like us.”

Thanks to Mike Wistow of Folking.com for his review of The Distance.
“The songs reflect Langran’s knowledge of poetic tradition and seem like poems set to music.”
” … the ability to write songs for people to join in with is a canny skill. There is much about this album which is understated, but as I’ve kept listening, I’ve found that I hum along to many of the songs.”
Many thanks to Dean Jackson of BBC Introducing for playing our song To Be Continued on the Beat. Thank for the great comments too … “A really good song” indeed. We hadn’t figured it could be a Christmas hit. Maybe we should remix with some sleigh bells?
