The band's second album Bogus Notus is their most ambitious yet. A dramatic, storytelling work, it was released in March 2021 on ZenneZ records.


Bogus Notus is a made-up term that describes something beautiful and intriguing, yet awkward and unfitting. For Sam, it captures his upbringing in the North of England, which, for all it's beauty, is a place where harsh weather brings the threat of floods, modernity disrupts the status quo, and diverging from the social norm risks exile.


Mixing styles, crossing genres, merging folk melodicism with dark chords and heavy grooves, Bogus Notus spins together a joy of home mixed with the discomfort of being an outsider.
