This formed the logical conclusion to what was an unexpected successful first album ('Aurora') cycle.

Isa Holliday in Paste magazine By Tom Lanham:

So when the pandemic started and lockdown kicked in last March, our tour of the U.S. was cancelled, and this was just a few weeks before we were scheduled to come to the West coast. So then we slowly started to see other countries nearby have some issues with a lot of infections, with Italy being the worst in Europe. So before Belgium officially locked down, we were supposed to leave on three back-to-back tours, and the first started in Italy, so we checked off Italy as a no-go. But a couple of weeks before we were supposed to leave, we started looking at all the other countries we would be traveling through, and thinking, “When will the restrictions start popping up? Will this tour still be happening, and will anyone even be coming out? Or will they still be scared of going into crowded areas?” And this was all before anyone even knew what coronavirus was capable of. So it started off with this long stretch of touring just being canceled. And then in the summer, we had to have a lineup change—we switched out guitar players and had to break in a new one, who’s been replaced by an old friend of ours, so we’re glad for corona in that respect because we had more time to train our new guy. But bad luck always comes in threes, I suppose, so then there was news about allegations of sexual assault from our record label owner, so Holy Roar, the record label we were on, collapsed. All of the staff members quit, and all of the bands left, as well, us being one of those. So we were suddenly without a label. So we used the time to listen to, and get acquainted with, other labels, and thankfully, we weren’t pressured into a quick decision or anything like that. So we really looked at it from the heart, at what would make the most sense for us, and who we felt the best working with. And that’s when we made the decision to go with Quiet Panic in the U.S. and Church Road in the UK. So that’s our corona story so far. Oh, no, wait! There’s more! And it gets better! With all that work that we otherwise would have had to do on top of playing all those shows, which was a lot, we would have had no time to fine-tune Album No. 2. So without that touring, we actually spent a lot of down time perfecting the new songs that we were going to record. So we hit the studio only two weeks ago, and it has now all been recorded, thanks to corona. And I think it’s going to be an album that will knock people’s socks off.

A compelling abrasive shoegaze band, dealing with the aesthetics of contrasting sounds.
Heavy like a gloomy dream yet soothingly vibrant.
The vulnerable soft floating voice of Manchester's Isa Holliday underneath layers of grungy shoegaze soaked noisepop, seeking shelter from a f'ed up world.
