Free Candle Thieves track!

The Candle Thieves: Happiness Blues EP released via Carnival Town Records on September 13th

To celebrate the release of the Happiness Blues EP The Candle Thieves are giving away track Breathing (Just For You). The perky Peterborough duo of Scott McEwan and Glockenshiels return with an EP of new material this Summer, quickly following the release of their beautifully quirky, acoustic-pop debut LP earlier this year.

Having spent the majority of this year setting up their colourful toytown instrumentation at fans’ local pubs, living-rooms, kitchens and back-gardens, and high-profile US support slots for The Scissor Sisters, David Gray, and curiously, My Chemical Romance, The Candle Thieves debunked to their bedroom studio to develop new song ideas written on the road. The resulting EP is another fine example of what transfixed so many upon their introduction at the turn of the year. To keep your interest until ‘Happiness Blues’ is released on September 13th The Candle Thieves are giving a way a specially recorded live version of a track from there debut album called Breathing (Just For You)

Fronted by the casio-led pop squiggle of the deliciously oddball ‘Sunshine Song’, ‘Happiness Blues’ continues where that LP left off, with more endearing and evocative left field indie-pop. It’s a refreshing sound that veers from any definable scene and makes these awkward, but impeccably presented chaps so richly enchanting.

EP Tracklisting:
The Sunshine Song
Annabelle’s Song
Paper Aeroplanes
Balloon #2

As arguably Peterborough’s finest export since one fifth of JLS, Scott and Glock look set to make giant strides into the public’s consciousness, armed solely with their own striking irreverence.
