Thanks to Mike Wistow of 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.”

BBC Introduces …

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?
