Pinkly Things, Catlow’s 2nd release highlights Thirsk’s coy vocals as melodies flex their electro muscles over dense atmospheric guitar rock with a power-pop heart.. Thirsk’s chilly neo-disco fuses hot indie-rocks with blippy synth to create sing-song melodies.

The debut album, Kiss The World was recorded with Ian Browne, of Matthew Good and No Sinner; with Al Sgro and Wil Golden (Michelle Branch) in Los Angeles at Studio 9; and mixing with Brian Carson of Wicked Lester and Bran Van 3000 alumni Dave Hodge of One, Broken Social Scene, at the renowned Village Recorder in LA..
