I don’t know how I even persuaded my band mates that I could play banjo, let alone anyone else, but in a bizarre sequence of events now banjos are being sold with my name on it. It’s a weird world we live in. This only goes to show that “fake it till you make it” turns out to be quite wise words to live by.
We have been planning an adventure to Mexico and the western states of America and we couldn’t be more excited to announce that tickets are now available. We will be bringing along Gang of Youths who we’ve travelled across Europe with on this Delta world tour. We get to visit some of our favourite cities and we can’t wait to have a sing and a dance with you.
The tour keeps on rolling and we’re heading to the Southern States! AND we’re coming back to Mexico! First ever time playing in Guadalajara and Monterrey as well as returning to Mexico City.
Gang of Youths will be joining us as our special guests, check out a video of us performing together recently in Sweden below.
We’re really excited about all of these shows and we’ll hopefully see you there!

We’re very proud to share the music video for our latest single Woman with you.
Shot in New York by our good friend James Marcus Haney & features the incredibly talented dancers Stephanie Crousillat and Yeman Brown who have brought the song to life beautifully.
“It’s the love between those two people and that’s why the video is clever: It reveals that throughout the song. It’s not something that smacks you in the face the first second of the video, it’s something you learn.” You can read Winston’s full interview with Dance Magazine about the inspiration behind the video here.
When we knew we were shooting our video for ‘Beloved’ in Port Talbot, we asked Welsh photographer Leia Morrison to capture those often unseen moments on set but also to document her take on the people, places & hidden beauty of the town. Here is a snapshot of her work in her own words.
Port Talbot and its surroundings are often overlooked in the UK, and so being given the opportunity to document the people and places of Port Talbot was both important & really exciting to me. The town has lived through difficult economic times, with the demise of the steel industry taking its toll on the lives of the locals yet Port Talbot holds so much hidden beauty and potential, captured exquisitely in this music video, and hopefully translated in my photographs.
When not on set capturing majestic horses cantering across a deserted Welsh beach or documenting intimate moments of the friendships, on and off camera, I was wandering the streets of Port Talbot; meeting people & getting to know their stories, whilst also capturing their characters in the portraits.
My favourites include one of two young boys on their bikes, in the estate, and a mother with her child outside a shop in the main town. In a world that has become so fast-paced and superficial, I loved taking some time to slow down and really capture the beautifully intimate and timeless moments of everyday life.
