In January 2020, Rozi Plain travelled over to the Isle of Eigg to work with two of her closest companions; GERARD BLACK, a Glasgow-based musician and songwriter, frontman with electronic synth upstarts Babe, and frequent performer with Charlotte Gainsbourg and François & The Atlas Mountains; and JAMIE WHITBY-COLES, a fellow acolyte of the Bristol scene, who plays alongside Rozi with This Is The Kit, and creates his own music under the moniker B-Fax.
Whilst on the island, this ebullient trio recorded a collection of woozy, groovy instrumentals and songs; dreamy guitars, soft analogue synths, floaty drums and percussion collide, each pal taking a turn on lead vocals.
Part two of our two-part interview, was recorded in September 2020. Rozi, Gerard and Jamie were in Winchester, sat in Rozi’s parent’s garden - taking a break from recording some new demos. They discuss how they met one another, their trip to Eigg, and their writing/recording process during their stay on the island. Throughout this episode you’ll hear clips of some of the tracks they created for the project.
