I’m really excited to announce my new album, Yes! Come Parade With Us, which I’ve been sitting on it like a hen on her eggs for a few months now. I made the record using my modular synth and and a bounty of field recordings gathered on my summer holiday walking 60 miles of the Norfolk Coast Path. It also features two amazing drummers: Tom Skinner (Hello Skinny, Sons of Kemet) and my Polar Bear bandmate Seb Rochford.

The physical act of walking in Norfolk, drinking in all these amazingly wild vistas inspired the tempo and the melodies you’ll hear. Each song also contains sounds fresh from the coast – Doing The Beeston Bump opens with a walk on the pebble beach at Cley-Next-The-Sea. Elephant Bones contains the eerie sound of masts in the wind at Blakeney boat yard and on Pillar are a myriad of sounds from Wells harbour: slack water, moored fishing boats, and countless birds, including a tern catching its breakfast

“A musician who combines acoustic and electronic music with an irresistible compulsion to build Heath Robinson- like inventions” (The Guardian)

“One of the bourgeoning stars of post-electronica” (The Wire)

“He has used the power available to him to push boundaries and concepts” (Future Music)
