‘Here are 5 songs recorded in 2020. Fair enough, work was well underway on Babanod and Poetry by mid-2019, but still, the collection represents a fairly coherent period, when circumstances required a particular mode of composing, producing and being. This is kind of what 2020 was like for us. This was the taste of our particular flu pastille.’
This exclusive EP features an extended version of ‘Partypooper’ and an exclusive track, ‘Marshmallow’, only available on vinyl*
HMS Morris are an art-rock group from Wales. They’ve been touring and recording since 2015, and are supported by the Cardiff-based Bubblewrap Collective. Their 2 full-length albums to date (2016’s ‘Interior Design’ and 2018’s ‘Inspirational Talks’) both earned nominations for the Welsh Music Prize, and were variously described as ‘Innovative, forward thinking pop music’ (Earthly Pleasures), ‘strange and beautiful music’ (Electronic Sound) and a ‘multi-dimensional sound that traipses across hitherto unexplored regions of sound’ (Clash)’. They’ve taken their music to Toronto, Montreal, Osaka, Tokyo and Kyoto, and are currently working on a piece of theatre/art/dance/music about running away from Earth.
* Your download code will include a digital version of ‘Marshmallow’.
