Our Music

We have no aspiration to be famous (rich would be nice but famous? Nah!) We're making music because it's something that we enjoyed a great deal many years ago and now, thanks to lockdown, we've re-discovered that joy. We're not too fast when it comes to recording new songs, real life regularly gets in the way, as you would expect, but when we do come up with something new, you will find it here.

If you really enjoy our music, we'd be thrilled if you'd consider buying our songs. There are many places you can do this from, but Bandcamp is the best. We don't think we'll ever break even or make a profit, but earnings from streams on sites such as Spotify are negligible, whereas actual sales will go some way to us recouping the money we spent on all our new shiny instruments and gadgets!

If you want to learn more about our songs, have a look below...unless you're on a mobile device. Then it'll probably look like crap. Still working on that. Sorry for our amateurishness!

Cover - You Decide.jpg

You Decide is the first "proper" song Paul and Matt ever wrote in their first band, West Tangleyam. The year was 1997, and You Decide came about as parts of two songs were stuck together.

This as the second song Matt decided to record in lockdown 2020, but got Jimmy to help out on bass. Only ever uploaded for friends, the song was dragged out again in 2021 with Paul adding his vocal and guitar to finally perfect the track.

As December 2020 approached, the band decided to maybe write a Christmas song. Matt's first attempt, Covid Christmas, was quickly vetoed but his second attempt a week later was much better received. Santa's Day Off was written, recorded and released within eight days.

 

All proceeds earned from the sale of this song will be donated to the helipad appeal at Sheffield Children's Hospital, a charity close to the hearts of the band.

Cover - No Friend of Mine.jpg

No Friend of Mine is a song that was written by Matt, Jimmy during their time in Second Storm, the band they formed after the collapse of West Tangleyam. Matt's cousin Jim, who was one of the many drummers in that band, also helped by writing the chorus.

Reanimated eighteen years later, in 2020, Paul's seven or eight new guitar parts (not kidding) brought new life to this up tempo chest-thumping rocker.

Cover - We Were Free.jpg

We Were Free is a song by Matt that started life as the last embers of West Tangleyam were extinguished, and was finished in the band Second Storm.

The song was recorded before Storm of Crows officially formed and as such, Paul doesn't actually feature on it (kind of like Ringo in the first couple of Beatles songs...he's not on this either) but to make up for that, you have Matt's daughter, Evie, playing piano for us instead.

Cover - Upon Us.jpg

Upon Us is the oldest song we have recorded so far. Written by Paul and Matt in 1998, they were as surprised as each other to realise that over twenty years later, it was actually a decent song.


This song was recorded when the band thought they were still just messing around in Lockdown, but once they finished it they realised they wanted to do more and thus, Storm of Crows was born!
