New Album Edgelands

Released May 2018

Folk and country music often taps into a sense of freedom offered by the open road and the wide expanse of the open plains, but these are not the landscapes the band grew up in or occupy now. The new album EDGELANDS, takes its musical inspiration from the unloved, in-between and forgotten spaces on the edges of cities and towns. That scrap of land by the side of the ring road or behind the out-of-town shopping centre.

EDGELANDS explores a very British, suburban kind of wilderness. Sometimes unsettling and bleak, at other times hopeful and inspiring, celebrating the startling beauty that can be found in the forgotten corners of wasteland. With the right mixture of night-time, isolation and service station strip lighting, the edgelands can be as reverent as a cathedral or an old theatre.
