Our debut album is out and we’re really proud of it. If you’ve got 30 minutes to spare this weekend we’d love it if you checked it out. If it moves you in any way, then a like, share, mention or follow - anywhere - does go a long way. Obviously, buying/downloading/streaming the album, or buying tickets to our shows, is greatly appreciated, but the currency of kind words means a lot to us as well. So please do tell us what you think, or even share the album with someone you reckon might dig it, too. Anyway, enjoy - it’s your record now. There’s a ink to the album in our bio. Big love, S&C ... △△△ Photo by our Dorje: @dum_studio
