Clash Magazine UK – ‘The pair melt in to one another to create a spectral and lush backdrop’
he Guardian UK -‘Magical’

The new single ‘Big Jet Plane’ has already been launched in the UK by Jonathan Ross on Radio 2 and is accompanied by a beautiful video. Directed and shot In Australia by Kiku Ohe, the video tells the simple story of a girl dreaming of escape from her mundane situation and stars AFI award-winning actress Emily Barclay.
