Good afternoon from Sandtimer HQ. We will shortly be making the long and arduous journey up to Leytonstone, Londin to play a set at the Luna - The home of live music. If you haven't got any plans for this evening, we'll see you there, and will be playing at around 8pm.
In other news, thanks so much to Curved FLOW for featuring our latest single 'New Year Morning' on their recent playlist. https://youtu.be/ckB86KaR2k4. Also, huge thanks to Indie Bands Blog for a great write up on the song! https://emergingindiebands.com/sandtimer-new-year-morning-…/
Happy New Year everyone, from Sandtimer HQ:
Here is a new song for you, all about that moment when you look out on a new year and get a bit... pensive. It's the first off our new album, out later this year.
Best wishes to all for 2018, and thanks to everyone who made 2017 such a fantastic year for us.
