Third album from Liverpool born singer-songwriter Alex Highton. Rather than the acoustic bucolic musings of ""Woodditton Wives Club"" (""a masterpiece,"" according to Heaven Magazine in Holland, ""World class,"" said the Guardian) or his disconcerting take on existence that was ""Nobody Knows Anything"" (""Sufjan Stevens like audacity….4 Stars"" Mojo Magazine""), his new album expands his sound into a something much more complex and sonically adventurous. As a kid his time was split between his native Liverpool and Florence, Italy, after his parents' divorce. Liverpool has a musical heritage that is impossible to escape but it was during the summers, whilst devouring his Dad's amazingly eclectic record collection , that his musical education began, taking in everything from Talking Heads & Penguin Café Orchestra to David Ackles & Bowie. He lost his twenties to bad decisions and then struggling through some kind of breakdown, he started to take songwriting seriously.
