about

Regarded as a ‘lost album,’ this is a collection of previously unheard home recordings made in 2012, shelved and deemed as “too dark and too personal." The album’s release signifies an emergence from a cocoon.

Self-recorded with contributions from Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) on drums and Bobb Bruno (Best Coast) on bass and features IW’s unguarded voice, lyrics and explorations on a wide array of instruments beyond 6 & 12 String Acoustic and Electric Guitar, ranging from Santoor, Sitar, Harmonium, Piano and Synths.
