  • [Ren] I’m putting together a Rough Trade Edition, which collects together some of the in-betweens and afterthoughts from the record. I’ve been writing it at the same time as physically cutting and stitching the album artwork - writing in and out of the lyrics - using cutting and stitching as a way of thinking about stuff like community, building solidarity, surviving precarity, resisting perfectionism, gender and craft, emotional labour and the environment. It’s kind of like how I speak in between songs on stage, but in writing. Right now it's only available to preorder via Bandcamp

about

Album Introduction by Ren Aldridge:

Cut & Stitch is a patchwork of different sounds, ideas and feelings. It’s the most experimental record we’ve made so far, both musically and lyrically. Cutting and stitching is a process that can go on indefinitely - stitches are easily unpicked, new shapes can be cut, everything can be rearranged. We cut our patches off of old clothes and sew them onto something else. Continuity is an idea that underpins the record, from ‘the sound does not arrive’ to ‘we’re not finished, we never fucking will be.’ This follows on from the sentiment of our last EP, ‘The Future is Dark.’ Political change is a slow, complicated process that’s often only partly visible with hindsight. Making change is a constant collective process that never stops. Its probably impossible for us to see our place within it or to know what consequences our actions will have. It isn’t as simple or hopeless as straightforward victories and failures.

Feminism has become more of an overall approach than an obvious topic, seeping into the way we think about everything from the environment to mental health. We’ve also started to think more about what feminism means for men, given that half of the band are men, and explore the perspective of a man struggling with expressing his emotions in ‘Talk in Tongues.’

The majority of the lyrics were written in the studio. I was having a difficult time, unsure about where to live after we finished the record, and burnt out from a tough year of personal and legal challenges. Something that I’ve reluctantly allowed feminism to teach me is that we have to tend to our own wounds, and that sometimes being vulnerable is just as radical as being angry - it certainly scares me a lot more. Rage on its own isn’t sustainable. We hope this is a more honest and human record.

Track Name: The Sound
This is the sound
Travelling
This is the sound

Chorus
This is the sound
It moves across borders
It travels through walls
Infects and haunts us
This is the sound
It moves in our bodies
It passes through time
Brings what came before us

This is the sound gathering
The is the sound resonating
This is the sound growing
This is the sound

The sound does not arrive
The sound does not rest
The sound cannot be owned
The sound can’t be imprisoned
The sound can’t be buried
The sound never ends

This is the sound, take it
Make your own noise
Disseminate
This is the sound, take it
Make your own noise
Disseminate
Disseminate
