I made this album over the course of last year recording in my mother's attic and occasionally my apartment carpark.
It's a musical exploration of the nature of strength, absurdity, romance, balancing transcendental appetites with ego urges and working out what's required to farewell the austere emotional spaces we sometimes unwittingly create.
It blends melodic experimental vocals with indie textures, lush harmonies, pentatonics, electronic beats and jazz.
