After 10 years of being in a band which has felt more like a family, these are the final two statements from Trembling Bells. “I Am The King” is inspired by various Greek myths. It’s about self destruction- feeling so jaded by the fruit machine of life that you start taking yourself apart as the final act of entertainment. “Medusas” sounds like it’s a Greek myth but is actually about jelly fish.
The Alex Rex songs are both covers. In April 2018 my younger brother, Alastair, passed away in his sleep. I dream about him regularly. In one of my dreams we sang the “Night Visiting Song” together as a way of saying goodbye and to induce his passage into the world beyond. “You Know More Than I Know” is a John Cale song that my mum likes, and all art is basically the artists saying “mummy, look at me”.

There seem to be rich layers to this album. I've discovered a hidden layer... serving as my idiosyncratic companion to an evening watching the sun set over Kotor Bay in Montenegro... Alex and Lavinia's beautiful tones... accompanying the slow progress of the sunlight retreat across the hillsides.. and the gradual appearance of the moon over mount Lovcen. Perfect. stuarty18
