Our 2nd album, 'Day After Day' will be released in Jue 2017 on the Babel label.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Numerology of Birdsong is the second album by Somersaults, following on from their 2015 eponymous debut on Two Rivers. Olie Brice and Mark Sanders have been heard as a bass/drum unit with the likes of Paul Dunmall, Evan Parker, Mikolaj Trzaska, Rachel Musson and Ken Vandermark. Chatting about their very favourite saxophonists and what their ideal trio combination would be, they both agreed that they'd love to do something with Toby Delius, best known as a member of the legendary Dutch collective the ICP.

From the first gig the trio took on a more-than-the-sum-of-its parts energy, and the three musicians love working together. They play propulsive, playful, joyous improvised music that ranges from swinging free jazz to timbral and textural explorations."-West Hill Records
