You can download the album from our Bandcamp page where you can get it for free, or alternatively you can choose to ‘pay what you want’ and chuck us a few quid (which would be most appreciated!).

So just out of curiosity, we put our single on Sordo.

If you’ve never used Sordo, you should check it out – alongside a database of links to download records by alternative/left-field artists and bands, there’s a label which has put out some very interesting releases!

Anyway, we uploaded our single to Mediafire (with a note thanking people for downloading, and pointing them to this very page), and added a link to the archive. Bear in mind that the song has been on bandcamp for two weeks, whereas it was only uploaded to Mediafire a couple of days ago.

So, our Mediafire stats:

How did bandcamp do in that time?

Oh. How about in the last week?

Oh.

That’s not to slag Bandcamp off in any way – their tools are amazing, and have made it super-easy for us to make an attractive presentation for our music, and those numbers don’t amount for a proper percentage of our total downloads (and that’s before we get to the plays!). I guess it just shows if you’re giving your music away for free you can do a lot more than just shove it up on your website!

Have you downloaded our single via a means other than BandCamp? If so, let us know!

Oh, and you can download our single here if you haven’t: BANDCAMP/MEDIAFIRE
