In a little over three years, the band will have released three LPs – an extraordinary and increasingly rare feat in the 21st century music industry. From the teenage indie kicks of their debut; to the sparse, timeless folk of last summer’s top ten album, ‘Flaws’ (nominated for an Ivor Novello Award); the quartet open a new and beguiling chapter with, ‘A Different Kind of Fix’, one that cements their place at the very forefront of British bands in 2011.

Recorded in Hamburg, London and Atlanta, ‘A Different Kind of Fix’ reunites BBC with Jim Abbiss - who produced their debut album - and also introduces them to Ben Allen – noted for his work with Animal Collective - whilst lead singer, Jack Steadman co-produces throughout.

The album is preceded by new single, ‘Shuffle’, which will be released on August 22nd and premiered on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show on June 22nd as his Hottest Record.
