The pair weren’t the only ones moved by the words and photos of the HONY post, within mere days the story went on to fundraise over $2 million for the charity working with families trapped in this situation.
McGill explains, “We were so heartbroken reading these stories. We get so swept up in our lives and forget how lucky we are on a daily basis. We wanted to acknowledge these incredibly brave people and all those who devote their lives to helping them.’”

The sparse arrangement of the resulting track and McGill’s crystalline vocals close in the mix, combine for a captivating and emotional listen. Stream ‘Quicksand’ on Soundcloud here.
Released as a standalone single, ‘Quicksand’ swiftly follows the Bristol duo’s recent EP, ‘Paraffin’ which came out earlier this year on Believe Recordings (James Vincent McMorrow, Aquilo).
