They're currently finishing up work on their debut album which is slated for release next year.

Kicking off with the infectious and hotly-tipped 'So Sofia', the production sound on the EP is injected with more than a twist of early soul and late 50s/early 60s pop/soul, influenced by the likes of The Ronettes, The Crystals and The Shirelles. It offers the listener a thick slice of high quality roots-pop loaded with folk instrumentation. The Musgraves arrive in style and are ready to make you smile, they are the Midlands band to watch in 2012!
