This album is an attempt to psychologically portray the mind of a Patient Zero, wandering through their urban surroundings infected with the solar downturn at the Summer Solstice and tracking the advancement of symptoms as the sun goes from the height of its earthly power to its astronomical nadir. Feelings of old are transformed as the autumn progresses, infecting others and feeding back into the shared experience, changing perceptions and projecting a new reality as signifiers take on different and separate meanings.
Written throughout the six month period at times of lunar or solar significance and in multiple locations across the UK, each song portrays a thought, experience or mood of the time and place of its conception.
A true and faithful relation of the Sun's dark passenger.
