Heliopause They say; In a world increasingly dominated by noise and light and chaos and confusion, sometimes the most heartfelt – or violent – gesture is one of almost complete stillness.

Jennie Cruse makes beautiful music. Of that there can be no doubt. You might even have heard one of her tunes in the British indie film ‘Everything’. For a while now Jennie has been working on her debut solo album. We’re privileged to have heard the whole record and can’t wait for it to be finished
Sparrow are two girls and two boys from Brighton and Cambridge, England, who create intelligent, atmospheric, sparse but beautiful guitar music. Their songs are constructed using close boy/girl harmonies set against primal rhythmic arrangements. The music is minimal, created by using raw unprocessed sounds and unflinchingly honest lyrics.

Turncoat met at school and grew up playing music together.

The Sun immediately gave the band 4 out of 5 in a glorious national review: “Soaring melodies and yearning vocals recall the classic indie of bands like Gene. Stunning!”
