Portico Quartet, 2012

Portico Quartet's critically acclaimed self-titled third album saw the band branch out into new sonic territories. Their new, richly layered sound brought elements of the recording studio into the live environment.

Alongside this 2012 release came a selection of bonus studio tracks, some of which only just missed making the final album. Four of these tracks saw a limited edition release in the form of a Rough Trade EP, however it is only now that they are being made available to purchase via CD & Digital from the Real World Store.

EP2 contains the brilliantly atmospheric Vtol, the band's alternate take on Steepless Ft. Swedish songstress Cornelia and Coy Carp, Sock Puppets & Train to Mountauk - either of which could have arguably been a key track on the album had they have made the final track listing.
