“This Moment, Right Here”

Who hasn’t already got our record? #vinyl available from the link in our bio 🖤 “Enormous cinematic soundscapes...composed, mature and at times devastating stuff” – Kerrang! Mag “One of the most beguiling, triumphant slices of post-rock you’ll hear this year” - PROG "Montage music for a romanticised apocalypse…f*cking amazing" - Alex Baker, Kerrang! Radio " enthralling, thought-provoking experience" - Already Heard “Bold, ambient, textural soundscapes” - The Independent “A sizeable slab of Big Rock” – Total Guitar


During the recording of ‘How To Let Go’ @bobby_pook and @beneaththewatchfuleyes used an abundance of different equipment for their parts.

All heavy rhythm guitars were tracked using Bobby’s Kurt Cobain @fender Jag with @dimarzioinc Super distortion pickups and @lewjohns @gibsonguitar les Paul studio. These two either went through a @bogner_amps Helios 50 or @jetcityamps head with a @mesaengineering oversize 4x12 cab. Pedals for heavy tones ranged from an @officialibanezguitars UK TS to a @jhspedals sweet tea.

For clean rhythms and leads we mostly used Simon’s #fender #jazzmaster through either the @orangeamplifiers AD30 or the Fender Bassman with a mixture of the @strymonengineering ‘Bigsky’ and the @empress_effects ‘Echo System’. Most leads were tracked using Lewis’s Fender #telemaster as the lipstick neck pick up really cut through, this was used with the bassman head and so many pedals we lost count.

We’re so proud of this record.
