Under the Radar: Half Formed Things

Half Formed Things are an Edinburgh quartet making atmospheric pop rock. New single February is a multi-layered epic with dark overtones, girl/boy vocal harmonies, a driving, rhythmic quality and a cinematic feel. It's the first of three singles to be taken from their forthcoming debut album To Live In The Flicker (the release date has yet to be confirmed).
