The first single, ‘Opened Close’, was also released this week. It’s a dramatic, declarative single that bends and stretches time and melodic space to its own dimensions.

Speaking on ‘Grotto’, object blue has said, “‘Grotto’ is a stage. It’s not a soundtrack to an existing play, but whilst creating it I was thinking about the space we move in, the characters we play, the dialogues that happen. ‘Grotto’ is a bit like if ‘King Lear’ had been a millennial soap opera with a happy ending; it’s me sublimating my difficult relationship with the home. I could only envision ‘Procession of Healers’ because I survived this weird drama and I can look at it from a distance, as I am happy now. I come to this theme time and time again, but especially now because we’ve all been quarantined in our homes, and we’ve experienced the erosion of spacial boundary in our lives.”

Tracklist:

  1. Opened Close
