Welcome to our third album of original compositions, inspired by people, places, situations, and our hopes for the future. Through the bafflingly wonderful language of music, we set out to explore the subtlety and complexity of communication. Themes; topics; thoughts; lines of enquiry; monologues and dialogues – all full of nuance and personality.
Since our last album, we’ve continued to grow as a band, diversifying our conversations and vocabulary by pushing each other to develop musically and technically. We have enjoyed this process and hope you too enjoy these musical trialogues.
