This album has taken me long to describe. I truly enjoy class dark ambient but Murray's music has a touch that is rare and always gently changing with a sense of urgency like the currents around him.

The start of this epic and incredible trilogy from Mr. Murray. Nothing flashy here, just some of the most well crafted and beautiful electro acoustic ambient drone around!

On the flood plain where I grew up, twin rivers rose each winter fed by rainfall from nearby Welsh mountains. Breaking their banks they swept over pastures and hedgerows, tore at the fabric of the land and isolated remote villages. It was here, in a makeshift studio on high ground, that I began to explore sound using scavenged instruments and homemade electronics.
Floods returns to that landscape; an acknowledgment and celebration of the destructive and regenerative power of the waters. It is also an attempt to reconcile with my personal floods, those mental waters that rise to submerge the will, that can at times be opposed and must at others be allowed to overwhelm.
