Trying Times at Sea

by Mohope



Hopeless Feeling 24/7 (Official Video): youtu.be/H4omh2DirP4

xenonyms is delighted to present “Trying Times at Sea” the debut EP by Mohope.

Trying Times at Sea was made over a couple of winter months, on an offshore wind survey vessel in the North Atlantic. The weather was often harsh, halting all work and leading to long periods of idle waiting. The EP emerged organically from these isolated circumstances, with each track developed entirely from scratch, and evading conventional song structures.

When offshore, you wake up at odd hours floating out of your bed as you crest a wave, or watching machinery freeze in real time in strongly minus temperatures. The sound was directly inspired by my surroundings, and by the juxtaposition of heavy machinery with brutal nature. Recording alternated between a shared bedroom and a helideck lounge, where the ever present sound of the elements would still make its way.
