“After the death of someone very close to me, I was, at times, so emotionally disorientated that some days I could barely take it. As music is my only creative output, I decided to make an album honoring this person: inescapably mournful but, ultimately, sanguine. Sleepy Follow is me channeling both memories and nightmares. There’s an oppressive repetitiveness to grief that lulls you into a sort of trance-like submission; that’s pretty much how these pieces were born. Every vibration of a guitar string and every reverb-drenched pad is entwined with the prosaic tedium of loss”.

There is a stench here so old that it rids the body of any uncertainty. It is a comfortable rapture. The stench comes not from distant swamps, putrescent and green in their small wakes, or the mounds of bone matter and meat made dust underfoot. This waft of hidden and yet all-too demanding treasures lifts itself steadily from the bated, beating wings of the Bird, on its eternal voyage somewhere far past home.
