Guards! Guards! release first single "That Spring"

The first single by Guards! Guards! is out today (officially only in Sweden, although, actually, between you and me, you can get it anywhere). Here is the video. You can find it on Spotify, and Amazon and iTunes and everything. But probably the best thing is if you get it off our Bandcamp. Either way, as you can see, a top tune. Composed, produced, and performed by me and Lisa. Mixed by Joe Harling.

We will be playing at the Birds Will Sing For You showcase party at 6071 in Stockholm on Saturday, onstage about 9pm. Full details here. Further gigs in the UK early next year, to be announced shortly.
