about

Another lost record, much hyped at the time, but then shelved. This one from 2007/2008. Despite the title its actually a fairly buoyant sounding and at times blissed out POP record. Its that 'pop' aspect of it that had me somewhat confused about how exactly to go about releasing it and so its just wound up sitting on the shelf. I mean its all songs with hooks and choruses etc.. Some of it was kind of influenced by the saturated pop of Jesu and similar acts but really its an amalgam of my own songwriting with ALL of my pop influences and I spent months trying to make it sound as AWESOMELY HIFI as possible.
One thing that has made me feel vaguely uncomfortable about releasing it is the overt and nakedly angst ridden nature of the lyrics. I had set out to write an entire album about the state of eco-politics at the time (somewhere around the time of the inevitable backlash against what had looked like a possible green revolution (after Gores film etc)) and that’s what you get.. Haha. But don't let that put you off. I stand by the lyrics- for the most part- but I'm posting this here for the music more than to preach..
So shimmering guitars and big goofy bass lines and pop beats and hooks.
