With the world in lockdown throughout 2020-21 we looked towards new horizons to find opportunities to keep being creative.
Our EP release, Hemispheres, is an exciting and vibrant result of this. We teamed up with musician friends in London & Australia and utilised technology to collaborate with them, creating an uplifting and optimistic response for the future.
Our Dartmoor/London/Australian-inspired soundscapes meld electronics with the live sounds of didgeridoo, flute, reeds, upright piano, rhythm sticks and etherial vocals.
With Hemispheres we looked to shadow the human relationship with our closest star, the sun, moving from dawn, through an adrenaline and heat driven day, to an ecliptic dusk. We combined the spiritual heartbeat of aboriginal Australia with the cool breath of a misty and timeless Dartmoor.
