Watt rounds off a 6-year trilogy with this haunting journey along ghost-strewn paths and tumultuous inner worlds.

Musically audacious, lyrically detailed and engaged, “Storm Damage” is a personal journey through anxiety and change cut through with an insistent defiance. sonically the album forgoes the acclaimed twin-guitar approach of its two predecessors, and boldly shifts focus onto - in watt's words - "a future-retro trio" of upright piano, double bass and hybrid acoustic-electronic drums, set against a half-lit backdrop of lone analogue synths, spiralling echo spins and impressionistic 'found sounds' adapted from online public-domain recording archives. “Evokes Watt’s early mentor Robert Wyatt at his most enthralling and adventurous” 9/10 - Uncut
