He's been working on new material since, with an EP due out on February 22, 2013. New track "Merseybeat" again shows off Birrell's developing (but already considerable) talent. Upbeat where "I've Never Seen a Ghost" was slightly somber, it's whimsical and sun-drenched -- perfect for a good daydream.
With the independently released, mixed and mastered EP out shortly, Birrell has enlisted a full-band to take on live-form. I can safely say GOVS won't be "unearthed" for much longer.
