Introspection is at the core of ‘Not Here’. As Alison explains, writing and recording this EP was a process of “trying to understand what is happening in my head”. To harness the tracks otherworldly pop elements the band engaged super producer JP Fung ( AViVA, Lime Cordiale, MANE), alongside producer Tyson Fish (Children Collide, Vance Joy), and engineer Daniel Caswell (Bad//Dreems ).
What results is a collection of bracingly honest, earnest and reflective songs that explore mental health, heartache, femininity and selfhood. These ideas and themes are anchored by Alison’s velvety, captivating vocals and the band’s intricate, dark instrumentation, that recalls bands like London Grammar, Daughter and The XX.
