The Kells-based band release their second album "White Fox", the follow-up to their 2008 award winning debut long-player "Carry the Meek". A glimpse of what was to come appeared on the nation's airwaves back in May which raised the bar of expectations for the much anticipated new album; The single "The Naturist" announced to the fanbase that the band were pushing the boat out and not resting on their laurels! The track highlights the classic intertwining vocal wordplay from Niamh and Podge and driven by D'Arcy's anthemic guitar playing thus marking a soaring return from one of Ireland's most popular bands.The follow-up single (out 24/10), "Oh-Oh" continues to visit new territory with more complex arrangements and instrumentation taking the band's writing to new creative heights.
 
“We’ve definitely grown up since ‘Carry The Meek’,” maintains Niamh. “In terms of all of us getting involved in the song writing process and, I suppose, just maturing as people. Making the song structures more interesting is crucial for both the listener and the band, because it holds the attention for longer.” Podge recounts, "The first album was practically all electric guitar; the new album is more musically varied – and not for the sake of it, either. It’s just that we’re getting our heads around different instruments. It’s a natural evolvement, and more texture is no harm.”
 
Produced and mixed by Karl Odlum and recorded at Sun Studios, Temple Bar (Dublin) & May Lodge (Co. Meath). Mastered by the legendary Abbey Road Studio (London) engineer Peter Mew ( David Bowie, The Beatles, ELO, Bob Marley, etc)
