The Peterborough duo of Scott McEwan and Glockenshiels return with an EP of new material this summer, and to celebrate the release of Happiness Blues the guys are giving away a track called Sharks and Bears online.

Following the release of their beautifully quirky, acoustic-pop debut Sunshine And Other Misfortunes earlier this year the lads have been quick to gain a loyal following on the road.

They have spent the majority of this year setting up their colourful toytown instrumentation at fans’ local pubs, living-rooms, kitchens and back-gardens, as well as a high-profile US support slots for The Scissor Sisters, David Gray, and curiously, My Chemical Romance.

The Candle Thieves debunked to their bedroom studio to develop new song ideas written on the road. The resulting EP is another fine example of what transfixed so many upon their introduction at the turn of the year.
