"In John’s own words the track was written after an anxiety dream (nightmare!) which seemed to merge post-Brexit Britain and climate change. He takes us spiralling through a smog laden, heavy breathing, high end state of unease, telling tales of never-ending dire consequences of the way we’re living today. Vividly delivered, superbly recorded, the backing music is a complete accompaniment to carry these thought-provoking words."
Marina Florance.
