Formed in Liverpool by Norwegian bassist Audun Laading and Barrow-born singer and guitarist Stephen Fitzpatrick, the band, along with their tour manager, lost their lives in a road traffic accident while promoting their debut album in America.
The indie duo’s first release was nine-track project Songs Of Her’s in 2017, with debut full-length Invitation To Her’s following a year later. The record was released via Manchester-based Heist Or Hit, which also managed the band.

We’re incredibly proud to have witnessed the hugely positive impact that Stephen and Audun’s songs have made over the past four years, and this new collaboration will enable us to preserve their musical heritage and continue to inspire future generations”.
