BBC Introducing with Tom Robinson on 6 music

Previous winners of FATEA Magazine's "Best EP" Award (2011- Nerves of Steel)

New EP "Rumplestiltskin & The Perils and Promises of Womanhood" on 15.04.13.

"From the opening chords of the title track, the first thing you notice is that the sound is richer on this outing and the impact is truly outstanding. It's something that applies right across the board, the luscious harmonies, the folk rock instrumentation, you can almost feel the atmosphere sparking." Rumpelstiltskin - FATEA Magazine


 

"this EP truly sees singer/songwriter/guitarist Louise Hamilton and her crew to a much higher level. There’s lyrical richness in the writing – the underlying theme on some of these cuts seems, refreshingly, to concern women being strong and defying abuse (the Rumplestilstskin idea makes a great allegory). It’s acoustic pop, not folk, and defiantly catchy, with Psycho possessing great hooks, and Hamilton herself is a passionate front woman with a very appealing, warm voice" Rumpelstiltskin - Chris Nickson - The Fortnightly-ish Review

FATEA Magazine Review

The first reviews are coming in for our new EP released 15th April 2013.

This is what FATEA had to say : "Flaming June continue to go from strength to strength..... "Rumplestiltskin" has everything you can ask of music, strong songs, a great narrative and top draw instrumentation. If they're playing near you see them, in the meantime discover "Rumplestiltskin""
