released June 1, 2018

The collection of songs on this album have come from a variety of places. You Can Miss was born from an energetic jam between Zoe and Gemma. Astound was created from Tyler’s guitar line while he and Zoe were in Estonia and New Slow was made by Zoe, Gemma and Tyler at a practice while waiting for Marley to arrive. The rest of the songs have been bought to the band by Zoe at various stages over the four years it has taken us to get this record out! Each person has written all their own parts to every song they have played on and have contributed an enormous aspect of themselves into the making of ‘Wherewithal’. So please enjoy!

Recorded by Matthew Hosking, at Hall St.

Mastered by Guy Louis
