For our recent second album ‘Running In Sunlight‘, we’ve been releasing a series of ‘audiovisuals’ for the album tracks. This snowy forest is for ‘I Wanted Us To Be‘, the first song we’ve ever released with Rachel singing lead vocals.
With a year away from live performances, one… unusual… idea to get our music out there was to create a game for one of our songs. This is the result- a retro driving game. Here’s a video of me playing it and talking about the mechanics etc.
PLOT- You must drive 3 cars safely along a motorway.
PLOT TWIST- You must drive all 3 at the same time.
Thank you so much to Radio Wigwam for hosting our performances- we played a few Running In Sunlight tracks as well as some brand new ones. It was really nice to be part of such a wonderful festival, one of the lights in these dark times. You can watch the performance back on the Radio Wigwam Facebook page.
Today! Sunday! It is the last day of the Radio WigwamLOCK-DOWN FESTIVAL and we are part of the festivities with an exclusive Sandtimer performance for you. We’ll be on at around 9.15pm today- tune in via the above link.
Good morning all, hope you’re keeping safe and well at the moment. We’ve just put out a couple more songs from our latest album, ‘Running In Sunlight’- you can now hear ‘Changes’ and ‘I Wanted Us To Be’ on all good (and indeed all nefarious) music stores.

Faintly as tolls the evening chime, our voices keep tune and our oars keep time, our voices keep tune and our oars keep time.
Soon as the woods on shore look dim we’ll sing at St. Ann’s our parting hymn. Row, brothers, row, the stream runs fast The rapids are near and the daylight’s past The rapids are near and the daylight’s past.
Why should we yet our sail unfurl? There’s not a breath the blue wave to curl There’s not a breath the blue wave to curl.
But when the wind blows off the shore Oh, sweetly we’ll rest our weary oar Blow, breezes, blow, the stream runs fast The rapids are near and the daylight’s past The rapids are near and the daylight’s past.
Ottawa tide- this trembling moon shall see us float over thy surges soon shall see us float over thy surges soon.
Saint of this green isle, hear our prayer, grant us cool heavens and favouring air. Row brothers, row, the stream runs fast, The rapids are near and the daylight’s past. The rapids are near and the daylight’s past.
It’s a huge lift for us after a strange Christmas to see our latest single ‘Yongo / 四五’ included on this BBC Radio 6 Music Boxing Day Night mix with the phenomenal artist Nadine Shah- thanks Tom Robinson from Fresh On The Net for featuring us!
