On this record Crossley is joined by renowned South African bassist Carlo Mombelli and drummer Jonno Sweetman sculpting the seven new compositions. Guitar Moderne has described Crossley’s work as ‘the poster boy for modern guitar’ whilst BBC Radio London has described Mombelli’s work as ‘hauntingly beautiful’. Along with compositional contributions the string arrangements were provided by Nick Horsten.

The album was recorded at Flame Studios in April of 2022, at Constitution Hill, Johannesburg by legendary engineer JB Arthur. This studio is built into the very jails cells that incarcerated Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi during apartheid, a venue steeped in history and meaning. The music is at times beautiful, at times overwhelming, moving freely from ambient soundscapes to heavy and dense post-rock, capturing diverse influences from across the globe underpinned by a rhythmic sensibility that is definably from the global south.
