Briefcases exchanged against a grey brutalist skyline. A nameless man wiretaps a phone call while tape spools silently whirl. A stolen dossier slides across a pub table.
‘The Cortina Protocol’ is the sound of these images. Recorded in three days to tape at The Cowshed Studios in North London in early 2021 the album wiretaps the colder veins of 60s and 70s crime soundtracks, weaving tense cinematic atmospheres, hypnotic kraut-isms, and swirling psychedelic funk. Initially influenced by the widescreen aesthetics of Roy Budd, Heliocentrics, John Cameron, Tortoise, DJ Krush, Can, and 23 Skidoo, the album was spontaneously composed, taking many unexpected
paths yet creating a cohesive aesthetic throughout.
