Well hello world. Our debut single OVER THE NEON RAINBOW is now available for you lovely people to stream, download and enjoy! We're so excited to share this with you. It's a dreamy bit of chillout electronic funk that should sooth the callousness of the modern day. We hope you love it as much as we do.
Also it's ten minutes long because go big or go home.

Text from catalogue:
Lately I’ve been making paintings which often seem to refer to the act of painting itself, so my miniatures became about miniatures. For me, they also served as a comment on the joys of detail, those favourite corners of paintings you will visit at your favourite galleries. Here I reference two specific paintings which I felt spoke of the meditation on character and identity; a Pompeo Batoni from The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, and a David Allan from The Scottish National Portrait Gallery here in Edinburgh. I wanted an element of the hand to be present in each painting as a miniature would often be seen that way - held close, perhaps something given personally, a very intimate form of art. That is what we are seeing here in my three paintings: the process of a commission to make an image of a loved one to take on some far voyage, chosen from an artist's sample book, ‘paint her this way’, to be held close and remembered.

THE OLD TOWN - EDINBURGH - SCOTLAND
The Old Town is the name popularly given to the oldest part of Edinburgh, as it represents the historic core of the city. It’s built along the "Royal Mile" (its main street) which runs on a downwards slope from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace.
A walk across the Old Town affords a glimpse into the city’s past: its narrow alleyways, winding passages, cobbled lanes and abandoned houses, are the source of many a ghostly tale.
I consider Edinburgh as one of the world's most beautiful capitals, and its Old Town as home of the best attractions. The area has preserved much of its medieval structures, and nowadays it’s full of pubs, restaurants, boutique shops and arts venues. Along with the New Town, the Old Town was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Hey mundo 👋🏼 eu amo uma companhia, mas você já experimentou explorar uma cidade sozinha? Minha segunda vez em Edimburgo, e em muitos dos lugares que passei hoje, mas pela primeira vez comigo mesma. Os perrengues, pensamentos altos, tropeços e mini vitórias durante uma viagem sozinha, isso tudo me move de um jeito. Me faz sentir viva! Se eu puder dar um conselho a você, o conselho seria: curta a sua companhia! Você vai se aturar pro resto da vida, é bom que você tenha uma relação saudável com você mesma, não é? 🤷🏻♀️✨ #miileva#minaviagem#scotland#edimburgo#edinburgh#lovegreatbritain#lovegreatbritainbr#collab
