"Peatbog Faeries provide another reminder of the strength and variety of the Scottish music scene"
Robin Denselow, The Guardian

With their unique approach to the Scottish tradition, Peatbog Faeries play to audiences all over the world. This album takes them in a new direction and could be long time producer Calum McLean's finest hour. As McLean said himself `this album has been the best musical experience of my life'.

New members have provided fresh impetus to the direction and creativity of the band: Fiddle player Peter Tickell has developed experimental techniques in the use of fiddle effects while remaining rooted in his tradition. Peter currently plays in Sting's band. Drummer Stu Haikney brings a vast store of experience to the band and incorporates sampling into his live playing.

The band prioritised live takes as the starting point for the album and began the process in their studio in Orbost, Skye before doing final takes in the studios of Cumbernauld College. The band loved working with the students there and handpicked four of them to take part in the engineering process.
