(e.g U.F.Os) is The fourth track in my ongoing ‘Variants’ album project.

This song started off around a riff I have had in my head for what seemed like a decade. It’s something I just couldn’t do anything with so I’m overjoyed I created something from its influence. The track actually started off a little more band-like in the studio and featured my wife on vocals.
After about of month of twisting, bending and tweaking it transformed into something a bit more electronic but still organic. I’m really proud of it and I love how melancholic but upbeat it is.
So about the title ‘E.g UFOs’. When I was younger I was a huge fan of unexplained phenomena and that peaked once the X-Files came out. I recently dug out my school record of achievement (a book of collected school awards and future goals) to find I’d written this:
I also like to study the unexplained (e.g U.F.Os).
A bloody weird thing to have in there to show to prospective work places but I thought hey, nice reflective title.
The video is made up of various time lapses taken in Liverpool.
