the producer & classical pianist, formerly known as MMOTHS, has delivered a sweeping experimental soundscape inspired by the natural beauty of his native Ireland, creating snuggly textures out of sparkling bells, swelling strings & twinkling piano keys.

Living within these transcendent works, his influences shimmer brightly right across the record, as strings & piano melodies blossom, reflecting the beauty of the flora & fauna of the grasslands. Colleran uproots warm, organic sounds & recontextualises them within colder, electronic spaces, before signing off with the raw & powerful emotion of final ballad, ‘Granu’, a track written & recorded with a live string quartet. “Throughout the record, I wanted to ensure that when it felt overly organic I immediately counteracted this with something digital or synthesised working alongside it”, Colleran explains. fans of jean Michel blais, the ‘journey’ soundtrack & max richter will adore this.
