“Elegantly understated with hypnotically grooving ukulele”

– Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music

Tom included the song in his Introducing Mixtape which was broadcast on 6 Music on the 19th August and can be downloaded from http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/trintro. We are super chuffed with that!

“Really, really lovely”

Michelle Hussey, BBC Radio Manchester Introducing.

Michelle has been great: supporting the song weeks before it came out by giving us our first play on our local BBC Introducing show. Since then we were invited to join Michelle in the studio to perform live and chat about the single and the future. It was lots of fun and we can’t thank her enough for her support.

“A fusion of folk sounds of a ukelele and clarinet combined with some lo-fi synth generates an interesting sound that would ease anyone’s pain of being up at 6am on a Sunday morning.”

Hattie Pearson, XFM

As well choosing us as her ‘Sunday Soother’ for her Sunday early morning XFM show, Hattie wrote a feature about ‘Poor Boy’ on her blog. We are truly grateful and flattered!
