about

Haven is definitely one of these albums that happened by accident. The oldest recordings from this session, Your sound and Sure & Sure 2, were originally intended as an ep. Even though these tracks make up the core of the album, it didn’t feel ‘ready’. The recordings were shelved, but then Unlikely, originally composed for another ep, seemed to match all too well. This was what was necessary to start working with the original recordings again.

Ironically, the opening track No turning back was the last one to be put on tape. (Literally - the album was mainly recorded on an 8-track cassette recorder)
It took almost two years before these tracks made it into a whole - and then it turned out that an lp seemed the best way to gather them. This is an album in the classic sense - not made to be listened to in shuffle mode. So there was no intention to make an album - these songs just proved to be heard best in an album-form. Michael Anderson (of Drekka) mastered the recordings, making the album sound even more coherent.

On Haven, you'll still hear echoes from the classic drone-outfits likes of Windy and Carl or Azusa Plane, but the sound palette is no longer focussed just on guitars. organ, vocals and sound-collages give the more recent recordings a very warm tone, and sometimes refer to the experimental pop- and folk structures of e.g. Richard Youngs, Grouper or Castanets.
