Pre-order the new album by epic45 ‘Through Broken Summer’ CD | LP | Tape
Staffordshire’s purveyors of pastoral pop, epic45, return after a seven-year hiatus with new album ‘Through Broken Summer’, available from Friday 28th September.
The first album release since 2011’s critically acclaimed ‘Weathering’
Much of what has always driven epic45 still remains; the British landscape, hazy childhood memories and a sense of loss. However, as tensions across Britain have increased, epic45 have been forced to re-examine their relationship with the country in which they live.
“The album is about, in part, returning to the place where we grew up from birth to our early twenties. From a personal perspective, it’s sad to see the place changing; new houses, the disappearance of old landmarks etc and the sadness of our childhood homes, strangely quiet now. But on a wider scale, it’s the palpable sense of cultural and political stagnation too. It’s a very insular place now, the community more fragmented than ever before”.
