“I wrote the EP in between moving house, I started the tracks in my old flat & finished them in my new houses. After living & spending a lot of time in Manchester, I decided that it wasn’t for me. I moved back to a small town in Derbyshire where I grew up & this EP kind of reflects my journey.”
Swooning pads set the scene for opener “Someone,” cut against plangent vocals and a stuttering breakbeat and humming sub bass, title track “Transient” goes deeper with more lush yet desolate polyphony and strident percussive rhythms. “Contact” strikes a more intimate and hopeful mood – re-pitched chords and dubbed out vocals allied to gentle jazzy percussion, while “Falling” brings the listeners journey to an end with a spectral lullaby, emotive descending pads punctured with glassy drum claps.
