about

A glowing light bulb of folk pop with splinters of darkness. From the shimmering lullabye of the title track to the guitar overdrive of Hovercraft to the daydreaming politics of Suspended States, 'Keep the Light On Baby' spins the listener off into melodic orbits and bouncing moon walks of wordplay. The album was recorded in Easton in Bristol July / August 2020 between the first and second lockdowns in the UK. A time when, for a moment, everything seemed lighter than air. Free from the past and trying not to think about the future. ‘Keep the Light On Baby’ reflects that period of freedom and release, searching for brightness, jumping between shadows, looking for lift-off in the pillars of sunlight.


Check out the video for Hovercraft in which three men dress up as hovercraft and attempt to be lighter than air - like cut price Jonathan Livingstone Seagull - in you tube link in the sidebar.
