With Roses - Mess+Noise Premiere

Writing and recording on an idyllic farm setting in Byron Bay had a unexpected influence on our sound. Our surroundings began to reflect a more folky/country sound. After the initial tracks were recorded, we returned to Sydney to finish recording. As time went on, we were systematically kicked out of 6 recording spaces including a few bricks thrown through the glass while recording in the last place. As you can imagine, the EP took a different turn thematically to a darker place and the first taste of this is 'With Roses' although this song seemed to cling to those initial feelings of optimism.”
