april 2015, in the midst of an intense bit of suffocating self-loathing my friend ben, my other friend matt, and i packed our gear into my car and drove four hours to my hometown of goondiwindi. we had the vague goal of recording some music in a dilapidated masonic hall across the road from my old primary school. there was no intention of making an album.
ben and i played for six days: guitar, drums, and vocals in that little hall. our equipment broke. my amp hummed incessantly. we got sick from the cold and the dust.
the end result of those six days is the LP 'it was never about me'. its creation was cathartic, and relevant, and juvenile, and many other superlatives, but above all else it was completely fucking necessary. it was so important to just sing these silly songs: songs i wrote when i was 18, songs about inconsequential, existential, angsty, pervasive restlessness and (whatever!).
so we're proud of this record, for what it isn't more than what it is. i hope that it does something for you.
