The 8-track album was written in London at the start of the year after Nathan and his wife returned to the leaden grey skies and bone chilling cold of London after a wonderful holiday in their native New Zealand. The plan was to make an album representing Haines’ life in both the UK and New Zealand, something about the people in his life, and also detailing the sounds and feelings of living in one of the world's greatest and baddest cities.
“I first arrived in London in 1995 and played a gig on my very first night. I haven't stopped since. It's always a challenge - a great big beautiful, chaotic challenge that throws up all sorts of questions day in, day out. I'm still striving for excellence, for the unplayed phrase or the unheard chord change, or that indefinable feeling that only great music gives you. The streets positively throb with music around West London where I live,” says Haines.
