What do you do when tours are cancelled, festivals are shelved, there will be no gigs the foreseeable, and a touch of pandemic-related writer's block has gripped you? Why, you write and record an Ambient EP in the space of 4 1/2 days for Bandcamp's no-fees Friday, that's what!

It’s not a change of direction or anything, but it’s been a focussing and relaxing thing to do and it has got the creative juices flowing again.

The tracks are ambient inasmuch as they’re intended to accompany whatever you find yourself filling your days with at the moment - a hopefully enjoyable accompaniment to reading, cooking, relaxing, commuting, or even just staring anxiously at the wall.

Thanks for all of your support during this COVID bad craic.


released May 1, 2020

Written, recorded, mixed and mastered by D. MacGregor at Compact Noise, Glasgow between Sunday 26th April and Thursday 30th April 2020.
