I had a hard time in 2018. I wrote these tracks to help me cope, but once I finished recording them I did not have the capacity to spend any more time immersed in them - so I put them to the side, and eventually let go of the notion that I would at some point release these.
A couple of months ago my laptop died. When restoring the music folder, I noticed "You were away". I had a listen.
It still stung, but not as much.

I love how this album combines almost naive pop melodies and grooves with dense drone/ambient elements. It doesn't feel inconsistent though, everything is masterfully framed by the fragility and corroded patina of old tapes and a luminous sense of joy. Papernoise
