Sawdust 03:21


CD Version available from

Separated by the North Sea during the pandemic, as a band we were greatly missing the thing we love most - creating music in a room together. In the depths of winter we decided to try writing new songs together on zoom. It came with it's challenges and distractions -Ewan and Lauren grappling with mediocre broadband in the rural Highlands, Jenny disappearing off camera when she spotted orca out her window in Shetland. But most of all it kept us connected. Still unable to travel far in the spring, we sent our songs on the journey we couldn't physically - to musicians whose work we greatly admire. Their magic and the mixes of Andy Bell brought these songs to life; songs born out of strange days, a long winter, but ultimately from a complete necessity to create.
