Hello lovely people,
This is probably the last update we’ll post on here. If you haven’t already, please consider signing up to our mailing list so we can keep in touch. We don’t send emails out too often – just when we’ve got something super exciting to tell you about.
You can also follow us on facebook, twitter & instagram if you’re that way inclined:
We hope you’ve been enjoying listening to the album – we’re so proud of it! After the release we both collapsed for a few weeks, because we’d poured all our energy into making it and getting it to you. I (emily) was ill the week running up to the launch and pretty much lost my voice, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying an amazing gig at Forty-Five Vinyl Cafe in York. In case you missed it, here’s a video with 3 songs from our set that night:
This whole process has rung a bittersweet note. On the one hand we’ve been overwhelmed by all your support, your generosity and the excitement you’ve shared with us. On the other we’ve been so let down by PledgeMusic, this platform that used to be a great tool for musicians and that is now about to go bankrupt without having paid us any of the money you so generously sent our way. That’s been a real blow to the gut.
Please make sure you’ve downloaded all the releases you’ve pledged for on this platform, as the website will most likely disappear in the near future. As for us, we’re dusting off the microphones this afternoon for a recording session and have started planning several more recording and performance (theatre!) projects. ONWARDS!
Thank you, everyone of you, again for coming on this adventure with us. We love you. Keep careening and carry glitter wherever you go. And sign up to our mailing list so we can keep in touch!
Love and glitter,
Emily & Simon Frances
