As we celebrate our 15th birthday this month, we’re continuing our tradition of giving you, dear Constant Readers, a very special gift in the form of our annual Compilation Albumavailable to download via our Bandcamp page for free!

Here, we focus on the track contributed by Archipelago


A flashback to 2018, Snowplough 5AM was concocted alongside electronic artist Fran Bundey as part of Archipelago’s adventurous BETWEEN WAVES collaborative series. “We recorded it live at Cobalt Studios,” recalls Archipelago leader Faye McCalman. “We had a day and a half together to write the music, and we hadn’t ever met before! I chose this as it’s a happy memory of live music and of the awesome independent venues in Newcastle – plus, although this was a different sound for us at the time, I can trace elements of it in our forthcoming second album, so it’s a teaser!”
