A new 7inch! Finally. It's a split 7" with Oscar Jan Hoogland who I have known for so long already and now he joins me on this new song and he fills the other side with a solo electric clavichord piece which I think is fantastic. Send me an email if you like to buy the single, it's only 5 euro plus shipping costs. Listen here and download the tracks if you like for a few bucks: Zea Bandcamp . A new full length album is coming early April!
