I don’t know (m)any people who’d be happy with an onslaught of Magnet press, but it’s in ENGLISH this time. And there are tour dates. …in the UK. But that makes me happy too. If you’re interested in Magnet at all, I hope you read all this stuff because I’m the slowest website updater in the world and I’d like to believe my effort counts for a teeny tiny bit of your time.

On Tuesday 16th Magnet will appear on Tom Robinson’s show on BBC 6 Music for an acoustic session and interview & on the same day will also appear on Lauren Laverne’s XFM show playing a solo session. “Hold On” is Lauren Laverne’s Single of the Week on XFM this week.
