This record is about the intimate connection we share with the Earth on which we stand.
It’s about the world and your place in it. It’s about looking deep inside yourself and seeing what you find. It’s about life and death and everything in between. It’s about greed, racism, colonialism and technological destruction. It’s about hopelessness and despair. It’s about self love and introspection. It’s about friendship and the power of shared experience. It’s about life-changing psychedelic journeys. It’s about connecting with the source. And most of all it’s about the pure joy of creation. We are very happy to share it with you.
We suggest you set aside some time to immerse yourself. Remove distractions, get comfortable, do what feels good to get in your zone, use your favourite speakers or headphones, and listen all the way through. Or not, it’s up to you. Either way, we made this record to accompany your journey, in any form you choose.
The bulk of this album was recorded during a week long session at La Cueva in northern NSW with some of our closest friends and family. The rest was recorded in Dan’s studio in Coogee, Sydney.
We recognise Australia as Aboriginal land. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we recorded this album, the Arakwal people of the Bundjalung Nation, and the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. We understand these cultures share a deep spiritual connection with the land, water, plants, animals and spirits. We pay our humble respects to ancestors and to Elders past, present and emerging.
