Simon Grainger: "The acoustic piano was pretty much the starting point for every track on the album. I started playing at the age of 5 and it’s the only instrument I’ve ever really mastered. Each track started life as a fairly straightforward song with chord progressions and melodies.
"In fact I think there’s piano on almost every track. I would tend to record an outline of the track on my home piano and then build any programming around it. It means that despite the album being largely electronic, there is an acoustic song in each track somewhere. The song Georgia still has the original demo recording of the upright piano in there which I remember recording in my house with a cheap mic on a very rainy day last winter."
