LONGFELLOW have been building a gently fearsome reputation for crossover antics over the past year. Alumni of the BBC Introducing academy the fivesome have hit the Radio 2 playlist (twice), hit North America (twice also) and toured with Hall & Oates (once) while simultaneously hanging around the uber-indie fierce panda farm and rattling around the London toilet circuit peddling a brand of louche alt.pop encapsulated in last year's relude' mini-album and recent edic' single, which is included on this here emedy' EP.

This here emedy' EP is the last release pit stop before the band focus on racing through their debut album.

After the epic hook-laden chaos of edic' lead-off track here I Belong' is relatively refined and restrained, albeit with the usual impeccable sense of Longfellow melodic style.

The fearsomely enigmatic video mirrors this clear-eyed ode to misery - not for nothing does it open with a butt naked singer Owen lying in the middle of a freezing Ashford Forest in January.

"Stripping down to the nakedness was supposed to symbolise our refusal to accept what we know is inevitable, that no matter how far technology and culture advances we'll always be answerable to nature," muses the now-defrosted frontman.

"Ultimately here I Belong' focuses on grief, whether it's something as serious as they death of a loved one or as trivial as the loss of a lover." Such is contemplative life with Longfellow, a band who are never knowingly underthought.

Suitably, the emedy' EP is rounded off by the rowdy perambulations of abric' and the mighty hokehold', which is Longfellow's most coherent outburst of epic emotionalings yet - all thrillers, no fillers, in fact.

Come get some remedy at these live Longfellow wing-dings here.
