Release Date 8TH DECEMBER

'EDGE OF THE WORLD' is the second single from the upcoming album "The Great Letting Go". 


The album signals an evolution in sound for the trio and draws on themes of loss, grief and recovery. 


‘Edge of the world’ is a rip-roaring journey into a dream lyricist Alex had following the end of a relationship. In contrast to the themes, the track is a lot of fun. Heavily distorted bass leads the charge, on top of a pounding drum track and psychedelic organs and clavinets.

Alex says of the album writing process:

“My father always said songs are your diary. I never really treated writing like that until he passed. That year a lot about my life was turned upside down. Now I wouldn’t write songs any other way. 


This album is a list of diary entries of thoughts and feelings, experiences, both painful and joyful from this past year and a half. They’re an honest and open reflection on the emotional journey. For people that have heard and enjoyed Pattern Pusher they will be different in sound and feeling, but I believe the songs carry more weight. We have poured a lot of time and energy into working on who we are as people, as a band, as friends and everything in between. The sounds you will hear represent the sounds we love and the time we have spent searching for it. From Myself, Ben and Benjamin we truly hope you enjoy listening to The Great Letting Go and all that it entails.


Out of this period of introspection came hope; the idea that life is a brief candle and that we should enjoy every flicker of it and simultaneously, that self-love and wanting your own ‘perfect life story’ is okay!  In essence Hotel is still a song of hope – as a band we are all born optimists. I think we all deserve to be happy and to live the way that we choose. It’s about letting go of the guilt that comes with self-care and getting comfortable with taking the risks we take to get where we want to be.”  


Alex’s father Phil Johnstone was a force of nature who toured with Led Zeppelin, was Robert Plant’s keyboard player and co-wrote many of his solo hits and was a huge supporter and mentor of the band and has left a big hole in all their lives.
