Detective Instinct "Black Floral"

RELEASE DATE: July 29, 2014

The follow up to 2011's 'A History Of Headaches' was not an easy record to make. It was recorded over a period of 6 months and was worked on in the four different residences that Heffernan lived in during that time. A miserable start, a weird and confusing middle and a joy-filled conclusion. Most of the instruments used to make the first album had been sold to pay bills in the time before this record was made, hence a very different sound to its predecessor. 'Black Floral' is equal parts home-brewed 80s electronica, wonky 70s kraut and ramshackle 60s psyche folk. It is being released by Sickroom Records in July 2014 as a limited edition of 500 black vinyl records, accompanied by a CD that includes the entire LP plus six bonus tracks.
