“The inevitable solo album of Edible 5ft Smiths and The Holy Orders singer Matt Edible is the first great record of 2018. It perfectly combines the cult icons love of huge anthems and lofi indie pop.”

Hull cult favourites Edible 5ft Smiths made one and a half of the greatest undiscovered albums of the noughties before burning up in a small blaze of glory, leaving broken hearts scattered in their wake. Since then Matt has fronted awesomely heavy & twisted rock combo The Holy Orders, all the while building up a collection of distinctly different songs of his own, more akin to a continuation of the Edibles catalogue.
Those songs languished in the vault until, prompted by the mundanity of life and an encounter with mortality, Matt decided they needed to be fully realised and sought out an old friend, producer and Edibles super-fan Joe Bennett (Dreaming Spires, Co-pilgrim, Goldrush, Saint Etienne). Before long a plan was hatched to cut the record at Farm Music Studios in Oxfordshire, with drummer Mike Monaghan (Willie J Healey, Ralfe Band, Gaz Coombes) and Co-pilgrim main man Mike Gale on board.
