Describe Your Sound

Dreamy bedroom slow-fi pop





One time I bought a laptop and started recording some songs when no-one was around. I put them on the internet and Batrider asked me to play support for them when they came over from New Zealand. Matt Maguire listened to my songs on the net too and said he'd drum for me. Then other people asked me to play for them, or if we could play together, or I asked if they wanted to play together and everyone said "yes".


People who play with me telling me what to do, and then saying "but you should just do whatever you want".
