From the Biog: And now to 2011. After a chance meeting, the band are currently working with A Quick One Records, and the first fruits of this union are ripe and ready now. ‘A Quick One’ EP does just what it says on the tin. First up we have a song from each of the brothers. ‘Lily’, penned late last year by Thomas, is a tale of hope and exasperation set to an ascending, mind-bending chord progression, not unlike mid-period Fanclub, just… weirder – Watch Video – ‘Number One’, on the other hand – Alex’s Chicago-esque piano stomp – sets banal self-help-book lyrics to the simplest, most economic melody, and of course, chord changes to die for. The second half of the EP is taken up with two covers – a complete re-rendering of Elvis’ ‘If I Can Dream’, ripped from its’ gospel roots and firmly transplanted into a drone-rock future – Watch Video – and an A Capella reading of Van Dyke Parks’ ‘Orange Crate Art’; recorded at home for a laugh, it immediately sounded too good to keep secret. The band will be playing shows throughout the rest of 2011, releasing new music via the internet, polishing their act and readying themselves to record the LP of their lives…
