Description

Limited Edition, Store Exclusive version includes a Free, Bonus 5-Track EP (Signed by the band).

Far from the archetypal bluegrass band, the five-piece's new album, which consists of 11 originals and 3 covers, is an accomplished collection of genre-busting tracks.

Recorded in the wonderfully isolated Deep Litter Studio at Start Point, South Devon in August 2015, "King Of My Mind" was the culmination of five years spent honing their performance and songwriting skills. This came to fruition in the recording process where, alongside award-winning producer David McEwan (Plan B), the album took just five days to complete.

The album explores love, lost love, death, escapism and idealism in equal measures, with the fresh songwriting styles and vocal delivery of lead members Mikey Ponsford and Kirk Bowman.

Signed EP Details:
1. It's OK My Love (Written for their "band granny" Ginni who gave them their first money busking and who has followed them ever since)
2. Boat (There is more to life than this rat-race, a life with our one true love)
3. I Know That I'm To Blame (We've all got our faults and it takes a real man to admit that :0) )
4. Ninety-Nine Years And One Dark Day (Jesse Fuller's tale of a crime and a lifetime to reflect on it, reworked bluegrass style)
5. Darkest Shade Of Light (Recorded live at the Green Note, London in Nov 2014)

Press Quotes

"This superb and breaking new band mix it up in the folk world with huge echoes of Hayseed Dixie and Mumford & Sons and delightful doses of bluegrass that wouldn't sound out of place on the 'Brother Where Art Thou' soundtrack"

Propermusic (Editor)

"...effortlessly entertaining ...sublime five part harmonies ...the pace of their performance is breathtaking - I recommend seeing Flats and Sharps at the earliest opportunity. If you can prove your disappointment, I'll personally send you a cash refund."

R2 Magazine (Mark Ellen)

"The picking is exhilarating, the harmony vocals precise. You can but admire" (4*)

Mojo

"a fresh blast of vivid songwriting from a group who are informed by the classics but feel devoutly modern"

Clash

"One's to watch!"

The Guardian

"The young kings of Cornish bluegrass kick up a righteous storm of banjo boosted, sweet voiced idealism. A triumph."

The Daily Mirror
