It’s taken from the forthcoming album Triangles that was produced and mixed by Stuart Mcredie, who has previously worked with Belle & Sebastian, The Fratellis, and Kelly Clarkson. Mastering by Calum Malcolm who has also worked with a number of established Scottish artists such as Deacon Blue and Simple Minds.
