We last told you about London-based indigenous-rock outfit Status/Non-Status back in September when they released the Surely Travel LP on the masses. This week the band returned with a new EP called January 3rd — a collection of songs held back from the initial release.
“While each song is deeply personal, at the time it felt as though they pushed the album further into the rural-folk spectrum than we envisioned for ourselves, but together now make for a sentimental journey that sounds just right on the cold winds of winter,” says songwriter Adam Sturgeon.
Speaking on the title track, Sturgeon had this to say: January 3rd is a song of reflection, “a call to a more natural way of existing but trapped within the busy people, streets and lights of a broken city. I wrote this while living in Flint, Michigan and it was the first song we recorded for Surely Travel, where in a song we are all just trying to be free.”
