Their latest release, the 4-track EP titled ‘A Stream Through the Valley’, showcases a breathtaking indie-folk soundscape that effortlessly transports the audience into a world of natural ambience. From the very first notes of the opening track, ‘Rock No Roll,’ to the final moments of the closing number, ‘Boxes (Silence Solace)’, the EP immerses listeners in a captivating musical journey.
