Beach is a 6 track album, consisting of one side of songs, and another of composed guitar noises. It was written, recorded and mixed during a week long period of relative isolation in January 2021, one track a day for 6 days. Each song is set to a field recording taken on the night it was written, of the sounds of the road that runs parallel to Brighton beach, they flow into each other to make the album gapless.
The barely intelligible lyrics of the songs reflect themes of isolation, longing, finding solace in hibernation and hope in the future.
“As you listen to me, do you feel the same as I do now?”
Track 6 was composed to fill side B of the tape using only guitar and left over clippings of the field recordings from the songs. It’s a kind of deconstruction of the music you hear on side A.
