The first single from The Lost Cavalry, taken from their debut EP 'Waves Freeze To Rolling Hills'.

"...a beautifully crafted track that really shows the band’s ability to tell a story within a cracking composition. Never at any moment do you feel overpowered by the vast array of instruments at the band’s disposal" - The Kaje Magazine

"The instruments, particularly guitar from Nick Goold and drums from Dave Roberts are very much alive and vibrant and the chorus from Mark West lovely and catchy. The other instruments intensify the fantasy of the tracks story and indeed its sound, which creates a lovely atmosphere and a lively medley of musical melody." - Stereoboard

Praise for 'Waves Freeze To Rolling Hills' EP:

"A superbly confident and stirring debut... singer mark west, possess an extraordinary voice which blends brilliantly with the electric-folk instrumentation" - Rough Trade

"These finely crafted, literate and wistful songs are well worth giving your time and attention to" - Folly Of Youth
