London Bells Are Ringing

Great show in London last night at The Luminaire with Antarctica Takes It and Allo Darlin'. It was a sold out show and the energy was fantastic with the audience. Afterwards we went to our dear friend Camila's place and hung out before heading to sleep. She is a great host as usual. Today we head to Sheffield for our next show! Cheers luvs!

Smittens on Tour

Hi all!
Just wrapping up our second day of tour. I'm finally feeling like my cold is going away and my jet-lag. Glasgow, Scotland was so fun the first night despite my tiredness. Seeing our friends abroad and our friends who are touring as well from NYC was great. Tonight we played in Birmingham, England and tomorrow we head to London. Check out our tour schedule here. Ok off to bed. Check our Smittens blog for more updates too.
