Quirky dissonance and drones intertwined with interchanging sweet and strong sometimes jarring in your face vocal.
WAR AGAINST SLEEP:“Duncan Fleming is a genius of a songwriter walking a razor sharp tightrope between deranged humour and classic pop music. War Against Sleep is his ongoing battle against the absurd waking dream that passes for life, in which he plunders the hidden treasures of a thousand charity shop records, writing songs that tingle the spine, move the soul and lift the spirit.

MARTIN CALLINGHAM: The former Joyce The Librarian singer/songwriter is back. Martins music is a collection of acutely melodic and affectingly personal songs, interspersed with the occasional instrumental interlude, field recording and heartening slice of lo-fi pop. The arrangements are sparse in places, lush and expansive elsewhere, with Martin’s delicate guitar and soothing vocal at their core. Martins debut album on Folkwit Records "Tonight, We All Swim Free" has already received airplay from Gideon Coe, Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson on BBC6 Music as well as featured on BBC Bristol’s Introducing.
“This is really lovely album and I have no reservations about that.” – Dai Jeffries, Folking.com
” Superb Autumnal fare, its gilded arrangement is perfect for long country walks, crushing leaves as you go.”– CLASH MAGAZINE
