Some of you may remember us linking up with London indie pop outfit Their Hearts Were Full of Spring in the Winter. Giving away two WINTER related downloads, well it was a runaway success, and now Their Hearts Were Full of Spring have returned from seasonal frivolities to present the second part in this ever-challenging cover-versions project SPRING. We've seen ‘WINTER' come and go, bringing with it: Over SEVEN THOUSAND unique downloads via God Is In The TV. An overwhelmingly positive embrace from the breadth of the blogosphere. A completely SOLD OUT physical release through Strange Torpedo Records. And more gushing praise than should be permitted amongst strangers...“Some of you might remember The Pixies doing a rather good version of this Neil Young track some years ago. Well this version is better...”“...evokes the chill winds of December...”
