General comments:

Claudia Groom was the leading singer/songwriter on this, and so the music sounds much like the Juned albums, particularly Every Night For You which she had the strongest hand in writing. The band combines ethereal vocals with a driving, dominant, guitar sound. (Neile)

Comments:

I loved this from the first time I heard it—delightful guitar sound with lovely vocals. Very much a precursor to Juned's, Every Night For You, which is one of my favourite indie rock albums ever. There are only three songs on this ep, but they're all longish (5:48, 6:14, and 10:15). Sometimes a little drifty and dreamy, but always in motion. (Neile)

Further info:

Claudia Groom and Christine Roskam also worked on Dale Lloyd's After the Flood project.
