In years to come 2016 may not be remembered fondly by many people for various reasons. But for us as a band it has been a fantastic year.
After a long process of writing and recording we finally released our debut studio album Tidal Patterns via 1631 Recordings in November. We are so thankful to David and Matthijs at 1631 for letting us release the record with them and for all the help they have given us. We have also been overwhelmed with the kind words that have been said about the record since the release and are proud to be a part of the Stationary Travels end of year list.
