At the heart of the group is brother and sister pair Rob and Kate Flynn, who have been playing music together since they were 14 and 12, respectively. Growing up together the two shared a love of bands such as Get Up Kids, The Anniversary, The Replacements, and Sonic Youth, the influences of which are strongly suggested in their songs. “A Different Space of Mind is a record about survival, about saving yourself from yourself and the realization of the world around you,” explains Rob of the forthcoming album. It was recorded with Bob Cooper (Nai Harvest) in Manchester, England and with Aiden Cunningham in Tullymore, Ireland, who also mixed and mastered A Different Space of Mind.
