Ragged Rebel City – painting a picture of urban decay, of nature taking back the city; harvesters of the fertile ground between acoustic song and ragged, unpolished, experimental, yet truthful sonic treatment. Where no fear of sonic experimentation nor cowering from melodic persuasion need exist. ‘Ode’ is an unapologetic, sincere album with foundations built upon the essence of a live performances.
Recorded in a cottage on a the River Deben in Suffolk, ‘Ode’ is a an unabashed tribute to heartfelt emotion. Themes of love and soulful fragility, of solitude and acceptance, of standing firm no matter what the cost. A voyage from the roar of the river, to the heights of the mountainside and back to the sea.
