Beach Ready - Archipelago
"My wife works as a picture editor and has an extensive archive of photos taken whilst travelling in her twenties. I came across a photo from the collection that depicted a boat being readied to sail from an Island. I immediately thought how the picture would make a brilliant album cover. With that in mind, I started to write music that would relate to the picture. The subtext being that although the picture looked like an idyllic island getaway there is the ever advancing threat of that set of islands being submerged and destroyed through climate change."
