The Skinny: Release The Sunbird is a solo project, but it’s not. Slapping a label on it to make it easy to categorize is tempting, but is ultimately doing a disservice to the incredible record Rogue has made. Come Back To Us is glowing from the inside out, the edges of the songs blurring in hazy focus, lifted by beautiful harmonies, meditative phrase repetition and lilting melodies. These songs are not the sort of cast-off melancholia or ambient electronic experiments in which other artists indulge when they’ve escaped from their band for a moment. Come Back To Us is sun-kissed, joyful and simply one of the most lovely albums you will hear this year.

Prizing: One (1) grand prize winner will receive a free , vinyl (yes we said vinyl!) copy of Release The Sunbird’s new album Come Back To Us. Hurry and sign up for your chance to win this awesome vinyl prize!
