The lead track on the new mini-album 'Lights' is one of the stand-out tracks on last years album release 'Volo'. There's also an alternate, earlier mix of that album's closing song 'If They're Right'. Beyond this are four new songs that throw a different slant on the band. Simpler and sparser, their drama is created through small detail. Where 'Volo' worked on a grand scale, a song like 'Boy In The Photograph' relates hazy, half-remembered childhood experiences, using a gentle build of instrumentation for accent. And there's 'Alone For The Winter', a bittersweet song of change and leaving, with delicate peels of violin and mandolin to thaw the frost. Written at the same time as 'Volo' yet never intended for that album, these undemonstrative new songs work together like Autumn fades into Winter - imperceptibly, quietly and with a little nostalgia. 'Lights', the film The release also includes a film made for the song 'Lights' by acclaimed photographer/film-maker Andrew Brooks. Renowned for his innovative approach to digital photography, Brooks frequently uses thousands of individual images to build up a single piece. A similar approach is used in this film, multiple shots segueing instantaneously into a seamless whole. Find out more about his work (with artists like The Ting-Tings and Magic Arm) and his past exhibitions (URBIS, MOSI) here: www.andrewbrooksphotography.com Sleeve information; 'Lights' comes in a recycled chipboard sleeve, each copy numbered and letterpressed by hand using vegetable-based inks at Hot Bed Press Studios in Salford.
