And you think someone is about to pop out of the wardrobe and say: ‘Thanks for stopping by – it was nice to have a little sit and have a little sing, but now it’s time for you to go.’ And you go out onto a road that,for some reason, doesn’t stretch out straight before you like a set of railroad tracks, but goes in all directions like a great big square laid flat on the ground.

“Near and Far” are acts of the inner and outer atmospheres of young artists based on songs they’ve either written or nicked, and stories about one’s search for belonging they’ve either experienced or overheard.
