A while ago, John Davies announced he was done making music. He couldn’t keep away though, and now has a new album coming.

Teaming up with former JT MOuse band-mate Stephen Black – Sweet Baboo to you – Davies put a crowdfunder together to get the money to make what has become Replica Figures. It’s already gone out to crowdfunders – our editor was one – and it sees Davies’s trademark lyricism, dark, dark humour and vocals nicely backed by Black’s style – fairly minimal and never knowingly over-produced. It’s good to have them back together and to have another John MOuse long-player on the shelf.

Replica Figures is out on February 19. Follow @JohnMouseMusic
