Letters_Halfway_House_photo_1aBarely a year old, 2011 saw Letters release three critically acclaimed singles ‘Pipe Dreams, The Grand National and Flash! Lights’ as well as played sets at the Rockness and Wickerman Festivals.

The Scotsman Radar, The Pop Cop, Jim Gellatly, CMU Daily and Ally McCrae’s Radio1 Session in Scotland were among the many voices declaring Letters as ‘The band to watch.’

Letters’ new single ‘The Halfway House’ that gets its release on the 19th of March, was recorded and mixed alongside Stephen Watkins of TAPE Studios, and it’s their strongest yet. Calibrating intricate guitar lines with gorgeous string arrangements accompanied by bombastic choruses, beautiful vocal harmonies and a lyrical prowess that belies their years.

Letters will play a couple of local gigs in February before heading out on a Scottish tour with ‘Where We Lay Our Heads’ in March to celebrate the single release.

Letters’ debut EP ‘Older Motion Pictures’ is due for release on the 19th May and will be followed by a UK tour.

“Taking the booming yet emotional presence of Frightened Rabbit, Letters new single manages to incorporate a throbbingly haunting cello arrangement into soaring guitars that reach Biffy levels of power.” Artrocker
