Hi everyone,
I’m briefly going to (hopefully) explain the ideas behind the concepts of this album, with regards to my approaches towards recording and with how it moves and progresses, and what the songs represent. Many of these ideas intermingle, but it will hopefully all make sense.
The main idea behind the album is my struggles with anxiety, which although seemingly relatable, still seems to find its way to like heaps maximum feelings of isolation. The songs are thoughts and patterns which are meant to describe the monotonous, unsure nature of my anxiety and the kind of very busy, ‘plagued by thoughts’ sorta way I have to go about my thangs. I’ve used this piece as an in-the-moment look at small expressions of emotion, using each individual layer to represent a different angle of a thought or idea and how I approach a situation.
The use of the bed noise: The album itself was made to fit a one hour sound-bed/field-recording that I used to try and set the scene of the album: as it is where I spend most of my time, at home - where I wrote and recorded all of these songs. Its use is to put you in my shoes. I believe that by having this underneath it clarifies a juxtaposition between how I am and what I would like to be, calm.
The use of the songs from my first 2 albums between the tracks is to signify the progress that I myself have come through over the last few years, and the fact that it’s all just progress, change is god.
Most of all though, I really do hope that you enjoy the album. I am genuinely really proud of it, and I’m really excited to finally be able to share it with some people.
I hope that this whole explanation made sense, and if anything needs clearing up feel free to get in contact through facebook or whatever. Also, I hope that there’s some solace in knowing other people also see it all as kinda futile.
I’d really like to thank all my frends and family for all your help over the years  I love you all

Much love xxx
