Fabulous reviews of Glow and Fade are coming in! Here is a taste of what folks think:

“Transcendent beauty and musical enlightenment” - 

"Evokes both the he '70s gatefold aesthetic of Pink Floyd and director Andrei Tarkovsky's obsessively eerie 1972 sci-fi masterpiece, Solaris... the duo's most potently realized work to date" - 

"A mysterious and entrancing musical trip" - The Big Takeover 

“An expansive and winning evolution in their shimmering, psychedelic sound” - 

“Sounds like Tarkovsky looks like” – Fan review by Stefan Horlitz, Facebook

We are immensely proud to announce the release of our fifth studio album Glow and Fade. Proud of the music into which we have channeled bits of everything we love: Pink Floyd, Bowie, Bolan, the Velvets, King Crimson and then some. Proud of the lyrics which chronicle Steve's melancholic optimism, always reminding us of our earthly human limitations. Proud too of the artwork by the legendary Bruce Pennington, famous for his iconic 1960s cover art for Frank Herbert's Dune and classic scifi books by Robert Heinlein. 

It's an epic spacey prog-rock/new wave hybrid of an album. If we never make another album (unlikely!) we can retire happy to the home for old rockers knowing that we gave it our all.  

We sincerely hope you enjoy it. 

- Martin & Steve May 2017
