about

I wrote most of Fly while living in Scandinavia and wrapped up the tracks soon after I returned. I thought about putting Fly together as a live set for a previous EP, Find, with all of the tracks being driven by the guitar - the intention was to go back to basics. It didn't quite turn out like that.

The complexion of Fly changed dramatically in the mix stage. I layered and layered each track with effects and ambiance. The master was then saturated in tape emulation. I got to grips with the vocoder during Find (2011) and it's used throughout all of the tracks on Fly. At times I feel there's a harshness about this record, yet it felt right to have it this way. Imperfection kept things sounding natural for me.

I feel Find (2011) is a very emotionally detached piece. Not written in the first person but about different modes of making music, transience and the expression of change. Fly, on the other hand, is a very personal piece, written directly in the first person. Transience has happened, change too, and I've grown comfortable in making music similar to Find. Therefore, I feel Fly wraps up the concept quite nicely.

Fly isn't only a travelogue of my time living away from my homeland - it's a companion piece to the roots of Find.

I hope it takes you places.

Andy
