Johnny Fox, Sept. 2018. "Samantha (https://www.instagram.com/samanthacapatti/) was always writing, more so it seemed when she was sad. I would regularly ask her to show me what was on the page, she would always refuse. One day I asked if she would show me what she had written, if I made an album from the words. There, came 16 songs, which would go on to form the basis of both ‘Cais’ and ‘Águas’.
In 2016, after what had been an entirely solitary process recording ‘Cais’, I was beginning plans for the album’s sequel and was keen to try something different; enter ‘Basciville’ brothers (bassist Cillian and drummer Lorcan Byrne) and their long time bandmate and general guitar hero Chris Colloton, who were - very thankfully - ready and willing to get on board to see what they could bring to the table.
A makeshift studio was assembled at Basciville HQ, and over the course of a handful of sessions, the tracks were jammed out and, without too much fine-tuning, recorded-live.
Some time elapsed, during which I released an album with Ger Fox Sailing, earlier this year, I revisited the tracks and got to work adding overdubs and the finishing touches – a decent layer of polish was applied but the rawness and the nervous energy of the original recordings were to remain.
To me, the tunes ebb and flow in ways that I could never have predicted, and the album, both in its formation and as a finished piece, offers a reassuring reminder of the power of letting go and the potential of the collaborative spirit."
