Gentle Despite - the darkest blue EP

Gentle Despite were one of those Sarah bands who never really made much of a splash (even in Sarah terms) and are now maybe largely forgotten but still left behind a legacy of some beautiful music. I always loved this EP from the slow melancholy of "If i touch" to the beautiful acoustic driven feel of "The darkest blue".  Down and introspective like much of the best indie pop is. I love the guitar feedback that sounds throughout acting as a background melody.

"Summer in me" is maybe the most upbeat song of the trio though to be honest the weakest song on here. Its still good but Gentle Despite seemed better on when on more of a downer. What are the (ex-)members of this band doing these days?
