“And where the stars change places with the falling snow:
A net of light to sail his Earth by.”
David Colohan and Richard Moult honour the men and woman that wrestled the Atlantic Coast of the early 20th century on ‘Branded By Constellations’, the new long-form two-track split from Fluid Audio. Consistent with recent travel-themed releases, ‘Branded By Constellations’ celebrates selflessness in the face of an insurmountable tide.
“And the metallic water flows from the nebulae of wounds:
This, the eremite seeks to wash away memory.”
