When Selway wrote the songs that formed Familial, he kept back a handful that he felt worked best as a separate piece of work; these now comprise the new digital EP, Running Blind. The songs evolved during Selway’s live shows supporting Familial, and he subsequently returned to the studio to record them with his band. Running Blind includes those four songs plus a live session video of the title track. You can watch the video at
