Aiming to release stress and negative feelings through improvisation, the group “invites you on a journey of collective healing.”

Their debut EP — Talking Therapy — was recorded at London’s Abbey Road studios during 2021, as part of the Abbey Road Amplify x Pitchfork London Sessions.

It follows the release of Thackray’s live EP Yellower Vol.1, in January.
