Live Acoustic Set on InterFm

We played a live acoustic set on InterFm yesterday as part of their special 24 hour live radio show. Matt brought his toy piano along and we belted out Rooftops and Make Things Better. Bumping into the very talented Rie Fu was a pleasant surprise, and many thanks to Guy Perryman and Maddie for making us feel so welcome.  We had a blast!

British Beat on InterFM: (六本木) 6日4月(日)

Enjoy craft beer? Enjoy British music? Course you do! We’ll be chatting to InterFM DJ Guy Perryman at his British Beat event this Sunday night, selecting our top British tunes whilst enjoying an ale or two with our mates Practical Lovers, who’ll be swinging by too! It’s being held at a brand new, beautiful craft beer pub in Roppongi, called Brew Dog. There’s no charge, so just pop on down for a beer, some banter and some top tunes. クラフトビール好き?イギリスの音楽好き?好きでしょう!じゃ、遊びに来たほうが良いよ。ノーチャージだから気軽に来て〜

Playground of Hope – Fukushima Trip

What a weekend! We took a trip to Fukushima, built a playground, painted a mural, and put on a show for the local children. Our first ever live performance of Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes went down a storm. Matt always did want to play that one. Huge thanks to Playground of Hope for letting us join their team, and allowing us to film their charity work as part of our new music video. すごく楽しくて、忘れられない週末になった。本当にお疲れさまでした〜 (Photo by Kiko Shannon)
