Do you remember when we used to talk Of new ideas? And by the flowers, ‘tread carefully’ you said I did not hear Like a sentimental fool I'd stopped to pick you lavender I held you close and said 'I must exist' You comforted me But when I looked into the mirror all I saw Was someone else's dream And since I didn't know quite what to do I talked of lavender again And now I wake up in another room And someone else will comfort me today I sometimes think about the flowers where we walked But I’ve not been back again An awkward silence that I’m scared to break because I don’t know what to say And there are things that still weigh heavily on me But one thing I can't change One sunny afternoon I stopped to pick you lavender When everything was new And all I smelt was Lavender Like a sentimental fool I stopped to pick you lavender And since I still don’t know quite what to do I’ll talk of lavender again

about

The final release from the band’s debut album, Nothing Isn’t Beautiful, plus four completely new, unreleased tracks from the album recording sessions.

Lead track and album standout, In Lavender is a jangly burst of melodic melancholy. Singer Seb Brennan looks back on an ended affair, cursing his foolish sentimentality, and wondering whether history has to repeat itself, and if regret is the only option.

Lyricist Ben Brill takes the lead for the remaining four, previously unreleased, tracks.

Druid Lane is a fuzzy sub two-minute cloudburst of existential angst; Woodlouse and Mirror showcase two sides of slow-burning psyche – the former a Barrettesque tale of late summer inertia; the latter a love song wrapped up in a riddle.

The EP closes with Fountayne Road, a sombre garagey shuffle in which Brill channels Alexander Baron’s The Lowlife to frame a world viewed from the wrong side of a window.

Along with the rest of Nothing Isn’t Beautiful, these songs were arranged and recorded live in a borrowed cottage in Litcham, Norfolk, over two winter weekends. Producer/Engineer Thomas Hatfield (The Good Gods, Wall Sun Sun, Stats), beautifully captured every creak of the room, and the sound of a band finding a new way of playing together.
