“Kaleidoscopes is a song of two ideas smashed together. Today we are often told a piece of media, art, music or something else is ‘good. There are also people who will tell us the very same thing is ‘trash. If we don’t like what’s ‘good’ or if we do like what’s ‘trash’, then we can be made to feel there must be something wrong with our tastes, our style, our decisions…pffft. Kaleidoscopes explores this feeling and says fuck that, I’ll like what I want to like. There is also a theme of the plight of the independent music artist in today’s landscape – battling against 100,000 songs uploaded to streaming services every day. “My paper boat against the tide” is a great lyric that captures the sometimes hopeless feeling that small acts have when releasing music independently”.

Kaleidoscopes was recorded in secret,
apart from the drums which were recorded with
Dom Neary Music in Edinburgh.
It was mastered at Air Studios in London.
