Big thank you to Hollie Fullbrook

LUKE - Conrad has about 1000 tracks just sitting around waiting for Sam and I to put words to. Something about this one immediately got me, the space and quiet confidence of it. I wrote the lyrics and recorded these vocals in one session (very rare for me) at my German puppeteer neighbour Norbet’s house (Thanks Norbet). It’s great to reconnect with renowned NZ experimental music explorer and improvisor Jeff Henderson, who plays clarinet. The funny thing was that Sam recorded some clarinet on the track first and he said “I tried to play like Jeff.” and then when we got Jeff to play on it Jeff said “I liked what was on there so I tried to play like that”. So Jeff is trying to sound like Sam trying to sound like Jeff. The circle is complete.

SAM - Hollie has an amazing voice, she was amazing to record, just pulling cool ideas out of nowhere non-stop. Collaborating with amazing musicians on this album was a deliberate choice, to break us out of old habits.

lyrics

Tranquility
With Hollie Fullbrook
And Jeff Henderson on Clarinet

Music Wedde // TPF
Words Buda


I remember a life
Left far behind the borderline
A different time
When the children were free
They carried no screens
When the water was clean
And we ruled the machines

My mind was a pool of tranquility
before the age of anxiety
got its grip on me

Won’t you take me back
