Following the release of ‘The Children of the Sea‘, I quickly wanted to quickly follow up this EP with a new range of material, allowing for me to ride the success of the train that TCOTS created.
However, it was a range of personal and musical which created a large amount of writers-block and an obsession for songs being on par or better with the previous releases, with most songs either being totally unfinished or scraped in the final stages of production for this reason.
At the dawn of the new decade, I decided to strip myself of my previous persona, taking on ‘Jon Niche’ as a new alias for my music [this would obviously change a trillion times more], bringing with it a new attitude and a new direction for my music.
Influenced more by artists such as Brian Eno, Modwheelmood and his own peers, I believe I have created an album not to walk around listening to, or to listen with sub-par earphones through an iPod, but an album for lying or sitting down and listening to.
Most of this music was created utilizing the late night walks and late night album listening sessions that have influenced me in the past, and thus must be listened as such.
