Edinburgh five piece Letters release their new single ‘The Halfway House’ today. The self-described (but very accurately) dark cello pop noiseniks have made it available to download from their bandcamp page for just a pound. Go without a coffee tomorrow and help them plough all the money that they’re going to make on the single on their debut EP which is called Older Motion Pictures and is scheduled for release on May 19. I’m looking forward to hearing it.
Stream ‘The Halfway House’ here. They were tipped by many as a band to watch last year, and on the strength of this track I’d argue that ‘they’ are most definitely right.
If you missed out on earlier recordings (tut tut, I did feature the band here over a year ago) try these for size:
