HELLO!
We have written an album called Iron Horse.
We wanted to write something collaboratively, so we decided to work around a theme: cycling in the city.
This led us to explore a range of musical styles while trying to express simply the experience of the cyclist – the freedom, joy but also the vulnerability, and just how we all rub along beside each other in the city.

We want to record the album (have a listen to demos below!) then package it with some lovely artwork; a fold out bike map based on the fictional world of Iron Horse, with lyrics, song titles….

We have got together some brilliant pledge rewards for any amount of money you’d like to pledge. We’ve also decided to support UK charity RoadPeace, who help those affected by road accidents; we’ll be giving them 5% of every pledge, as well as 20% of anything over our target.

Whatever’s left will go towards taking this on tour. That’s right – OUT OF LONDON. Just imagine!!!???!!

bye for now!
