  • We decided to ditch soulless plastic CD's and release our album primarily as a beautiful handmade book containing our lyrics in poem form, with specially commissioned greyscale artworks alongside them. Each book is handbound (stitched) and finished by a wonderful local (Hebden Bridge, UK) maker, Sarah Quick, using sustainably sourced materials.

    The illustrations come from 9 artists: Deedee Biott, Domenique Brouwers, Taylor Campbell, Alan Coulson, Sam Leeming, Charlotte Mellor Meecham, Alice Mill, Julia Ogden and Raven Rosetti.

    The idea was to make something that really values the efforts of everyone involved, something special that people will love to hold for years to come. A physical way of expressing and sharing the joy we’ve experienced through our first year and a half of making music together, rehearsing and recording in Rog’s little blue cabin on the moors.

    Approx. measurements: 16.5cm x 13cm x 1cm
    Materials: Pages are handmade cream Khadi rag paper, Cover is powder grey Merchant & Mills linen.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Twice via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

oh what fun we had
when our minds were wide
the expectations
almost satisfied
but the honesty was creeping in
a powerful child
the collation of wisdom
cremated, into pride

in the dark room

the terrifying prospect
of death drove us wild
providing a sanity
a clarity
a style
it gave us a purpose
that i still cannot deny
now we’re all bound up, so tight

in the dark room

who cared about sleep?
who cared about right?
we’re just scratching the surface
of this precious human life
our impenetrable deafness
stubborn little smiles
cloaked the captive whale-like patterns
of a limited life

in the dark room

about

"Johnny Powell, is still teetering on the edge of troubled genius with this new clutch of soul-scraping, larynx-wobbling freak-folk vignettes."
(24/7 Magazine - 4.5/5)

"Exciting times lay ahead for Johnny Powell and co."
(BBC Introducing)
