For The First Time

Cat No: ZEN269

Recorded with Andy Savours (My Bloody Valentine) during the early part of this year and then finished at the end of the nationwide lock-down, the album is the perfect capturing of a new band and all the energy, ferocity and explosive charge that comes with that whilst also clearly the work of a group who have no interest in repetition, one-note approaches or letting creative stagnation set in. Featuring six new songs including reinterpretations of early tracks “Sunglasses” and “Athens, France”, “For the first time” is a sonic time capsule that somehow manages to bottle the past, the present and the future.

We wanted it to sound exactly how we love to sound live, says saxophonist Lewis Evans. This is basically representative of our first 18 months, continues frontman Isaac Wood.

Indeed the band found they had to stop themselves running too far ahead in order to document this album in a way that felt as truthful as possible.

We see this as being a stop in the road explains Isaac.  I’ve always been interested in a really honest portrayal of what a band is and what they’ve been working on. I think it’s really nice if people can see an artist like: this was them in the early days, this was their next phase and that they’re quite clear and honest about genuine progression as people and musicians.
