Welcome to our News Page.
Our 2023 is off with a bang! After an extensive teaser campaign, our latest single, Glyph, is finally out!
At 2’30”, this little firecracker of a song fair gallops along. Listen to it here, by clicking the image, or via the links on our MUSIC page.
If you think that Glyph captures something of the magical, madly anarchic romance of the original northern UK 1980s post-punk and goth scene—you’d be right!
Glyph was originally recorded in 1985 by Hull post-punk heroes Punctured Tough Guy, who kindly gave us their exclusive permission to record this cover. You can listen to their original recording here.
Huge thanks to Punctured Tough Guy (Dave McSherry, Mike Scott and Martin Pattison), and to Xcentric Noise Records label supremo Andy Tommo for helping us to get this project off the ground. We've loved this track for literally decades, and it is our very great honour to resurrect it, and hopefully bring it some of the attention that it so richly deserves.
Lunar Paths: we are everywhere...
It's taken us a while, but---fashionably late as ever---we are, at long last, on BandCamp! Find us here.
So, we are now on all the major music streaming and download platforms, including SoundCloud and BandCamp. You really are spoiled for choice, and have now run out of excuses not to listen to our music morning, noon and night.
How much excitement can you bear?
Late last year, esteemed goth music magazine Obscura Undead put the call out for tracks to feature on their latest compilation album. They received “an overwhelming number of submissions…” and so we are very proud to announce that one of our songs was among the chosen few!
The album was released on Friday, January 6th, 2023 and is available here.
Watch this space:
Our next release on SparkPlug is Yeraz, a hauntingly beautiful song featuring the mesmerising sound of the Armenian duduk. It is out on February 10th, across all platforms.
Yeraz is available for pre-order now.
We have yet another piece of news that we are dying to tell you all about—but patience! Once it is all signed, sealed and delivered, we promise to let you know all about it!
In other news:
December 13 saw the release of another track from our back catalogue, Shine. Bagging us close to 20,000 streams on SoundCloud, we hope that it will exceed our wildest expectations, now that it is out on all the major streaming platforms. Just four days later, we got an absolutely cracking review from Onyx. Please check out our REVIEWS page to read it in full.
To mark the occasion of our first birthday on November 15th, we released Fuse, our first EP! We have come a long way in such a short time, and we thank all of our loyal followers and supporters from the bottom of our hearts.
As if all of that wasn't enough: we are getting more and more airplay!
To name just three of these excellent shows: Much Ado About Bugger All, Dark Soul Radio and Dark Entries Radio. Google and enjoy!
After the success of Shine on SoundCloud, we decided that the time was right to take things to the next level, and so we have signed up to Distrokid! This means that you can now download, purchase and stream our music from any and all of the major platforms. We will be maintaining a presence on SoundCloud, but, if you have a preference for getting your music from Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, iTunes or, well, pretty much any of 'em, you can now enjoy our music on your preferred platform. Yay!
Rise, the companion track to Shine, also created quite a stir in the summer of 2022, especially after getting a play on Oisin Lunny's fab show, Geek Pie Radio. Soon, we had clocked in excess of 2000 streams, just for Rise alone. That seemed like a huge amount back then, but our streaming figures have been improving ever since. This breakthrough came at the same time as two glowing reviews, which prompted us to set up a REVIEWS page.
By now, you will have probably found your way to our Facebook page. If not, you can swiftly find us under the Facebook icon on this website, or by clicking here. Please like, share, comment, follow!
We are slowly getting to grips with our presence on the various social media platforms. As you can appreciate, it takes time to create quality content, so please bear with us. Soon, we hope to be able to do full length videos for all of our tracks, and post them on our YouTube channel. Until then, please take a look at our short teaser trailers on our VIDEOS page.
