Degrees of Separation

EJ Norman

For some time now, I’ve been writing or co-writing lyrics for electropop artist EJ Norman, and now you can hear the cream of our work on the free-to-download album ‘Degrees of Separation.’

Although many musicians have been drawing on the synth-pop of the eighties as inspiration recently, EJ and I have chosen to focus on the aspects that figures such as Little Boots and La Roux tend to ignore – pathos, melodrama, and storytelling, whilst trying to avoid simple pastiche.  The resulting tracks, I feel, describe a world in which relationships are managed through mobile phone conversations in the stairwells of open plan offices, and lives become ordered and maintained, rather than lived.

Anyway, I’m immensely proud of the whole thing, and you can download the tracks here, as well as listen to them in streaming audio, along with a printable cover.

Hope you like it.
