Following the success of a crowd funding campaign, in the autumn of 2015 The Nightjar relocated to a farmhouse in rural Portugal to begin recording what would become their first full-length offering. The recording process was completed following many late night sessions in this rural idyll, and features material recorded on the most basic of equipment, and in some very interesting locations including the faded-grandeur of the bar in Serta's dilapidated Old Town, on the equally run-down piano. What the album captures is a raw honesty and directness - only possible with the band being removed from their everyday lives.
