A limited edition triple CD/LP version is available to pre-order via Pledge Music or from your local independent record shop, with a bonus disc, Photogene, consisting of  eleven instrumentals.Swift Street is the first song to be shared from Brilliant Light. The song is deeply personal to Danny George Wilson who co-wrote it with Polly Paulusma and Carra Bacon."Swift Street is the house where my mother grew up’’, Danny tells us."The song is about 3 different photographs - one of me and my brothers playing in a billy cart in the driveway, the second is of my grandfather aged 14 standing with his mother outside his childhood home in Aberdeen - he left for Australia after the Second World War. The third is of my folks in the garden of the house in Swift Street before they left to live in London. Each photograph takes a verse. I was nervous about my mum hearing it, but she loves it.’’Go HERE to pre-order the album and listen to Swift Street below. UK TOUR - SEPTMEBER 201712 - LEEDS Brudenell13 - NOTTINGHAM Maze14 - SHEFFIELD Plug15 - MANCHESTER Soup Kitchen16 - GATESHEAD Caedmon Hall18 - BRISTOL Lantern19 - CAMBRIDGE Junction 220 - LONDON Scala21 - CARDIFF Globe22 - OXFORD Bullingdon23 - TUNBRIDGE WELLS ForumBRILLIANT LIGHT (2CD/2LP)1.

“there’s always been a sense of a tasteful restraint to the studio albums but unleashed on stage with their raspy vocals and heartland rock and soul, they’re like a power station on steroids.”


“This is a proper old school live album, makes you want to go to a gig”


“songs like This Is Not a Love Song and and Stay True which come at you one after the other; are destined to make ‘new fans’ wonder why these kids aren’t topping the bill at Glastonbury with their magic formula and bittersweet songs.”
