Olivia Rhodes is a fictional character I “met” in a virtual reality game, “Lone Echo” and I sing this song from the perspective of an artificial intelligence called “Jack” who is her friend in virtual reality.

This is not an exercise in futuristic sounds. It’s very organic, with mostly real instruments, including a dulcimer!

Free to stream ahead of its official release, the track is an insight into new material the long-serving British act are producing for their follow-up album to 2017 ‘s ‘Complex By Design’.
