A love letter to the mighty blue Tees Transporter Bridge and the steel river it spans. Rojor returns with an album that explores grief, love and life all set under local star-lit skies. The music is as chilled as the river and the indie rock as timeless as the tides.

A prolific North Eastern singer-songwriter, as always Rojor plays pretty much everything, including guitars, keyboards and rhythm programming as well as arranging and producing, alongside Will Philpot who chips in with some guitars. The vocals are instantly recognisable as Rojor, something like a Double Decker chocolate bar: a smooth topping anchored by a crispy crunchy base. No stranger to national radio, the hooky You’re My One True Religion and I’m Broken Too scream out for airplay. An album to devour.
