LETTERS’ succession of single releases have caused a ripple in the blogosphere north and south of the border which have earned them support
slots with One Little Indian outfit ‘Wild Palms’ as well as sets at the Rockness and Wickerman Festivals in 2011.
Recorded alongside Stephen Watkins of Edinburgh's TAPE Studios, 'Older Motion Pictures' EP is their strongest, most well rounded four songs to date. From the instrumental rock dexterity of opener 'Explosions' with it's early My Virtiol style dynamism. To the haunting title track 'Older Motion Pictures' they possess a sky scraping ambition and a Hope of the States-esque power to move the listener both instrumentally and emotionally. These songs depict Letters' growing maturity and represent a sonic progression of their throbbing dark cello pop sound.

Selected press for the EP so far:
"I'm loving It!"
"Dark, atmospheric, with some epic-sounding drums washing over the end."
Drowned In Sound
*"Iit’s tight-as-a-nut, thumping pop-rock, underpinned throughout by some dark cello sounds. We’re impressed.The cello thing may have sounded like a gimmick at first, but it’s clearly woven into the fabric of the band and every song is clearly written with that sound in mind." The Tidal Wave of Indifference
*"LETTERS effortlessly present a hugely classy and anthemic sounding track. Are slow-paced songs capable of also being ‘catchy’? I think LETTERS have just answered that!" Loud Horizon*
