This EP is a selection of material written and recorded in 2016, some of which I performed at Freerotation that year. A recording of that live set is available here


Near the 60s council estate where I lived as a teenager, there was an abandoned windmill on a wide green at the top of a hill. The windmill had a lot of potency and the circular form contrasted with the squares and rectangles of the flat where I lived with my mum and sometimes my dad. I spent a lot of time wandering around it, feeling its power and recovering my own.
