12 years ago, we embarked on a musical journey crafting what would later become ‘The Second One’ album and ‘The Second Seconds’ EP.
It was a whirlwind of ambition and creativity, yet time wasn’t on our side as some of us were bound for different corners of the globe. We had to hustle – laying down drums for 14 tracks while juggling work on two other albums within a tight timeframe. It was a rush from start to finish.
During the mixing phase, we found ourselves in a daunting struggle to capture the perfect sound. What was meant to be our magnum opus, adorned with guest features, unfortunately, fell short of our envisioned grandeur and felt like an anticlimax.
But now, after 12 years, technology has opened doors to fix what was once unfixable. We’re excited to announce a new rendition of ‘The Second One,’ accompanied by the ‘Second Seconds’ and ‘Stealing the Show’ EPs, all treated to their rightful sonic glory.
Today marks the release of our single, ‘In the City,’ featuring the incomparable Jay Graydon. This is just a taste of what’s to come. We’re dipping our toes into these waters and eagerly await your feedback on this fresh rendition. Stay tuned for more singles dropping every few Fridays until the complete album emerges.
Thank you for being a part of this journey and for lending your ears to our music. Your thoughts mean the world to us!
