(United Kingdom)

Recorded with producer, Rich Turvey (Blossoms, Courteeners, Spector) at the mixing desk, Downey has gathered three of Liverpool’s most gifted musicians, Nathaniel Laurence (guitars), Phil Murphy (drums) and Sam Topping (bass) to make bold the sounds that match the weight of her own words and ambition. Realising how much has been at stake, Downey, producer and band returned to the studio after initial sessions to lay down new music, knowing that there was more to give. Having returned to her dancefloor indie roots, whilst listening as much and as intently to Flyte as vintage, pop-era Taylor Swift, her new songs found their final, intricately-crafted shape.

The results of those painstaking sessions are to be heard across a series of planned releases running into the depths of next year, beginning with Downey’s second EP release – the next to follow the incredible, sell-out vinyl success of 2021’s Fuel To The Flame EP – in January 2023.
