“This is chalk and cheese from the first album, and I feel like we’ve got the best of both of us on there. We’ve met in the middle with our influences, put them in a blender and come up with this and we feel like this album stamps a moment in time,” McClymont said. “We want people to feel like we’re sitting there around their fire and sharing their problems and life with them. We want the songs to have a place in their lives.”

With 14 huts now established on their property, the duo invite their fans to stay on their property to glamp in tents, sit around the fire and share their stories over a few beers while treated to an intimate, acoustic performances by the acclaimed duo.
