Different Geographies is a record named in response to the realities of close collaboration at a distance. The phrase, the idea and the method grew out of the fact that we have been living quite different lives, in often far flung spaces for the last few years. Like the slowly evolving layers of the landscape speak to a geologist, the tracks on the album are a record of the ways that our individual lives and experiences have inspired, interrupted or influenced our collective music making over the last 5 years.
"These organic tonalities are beautifully immersive" - Prog Magazine
"Different Geographies is an exploration of both traditions and technology, a fusion of neo-classical chamber pop and radical experimentation. It is varied and connected, intuitive and vibrant" -- Folk Radio

Collectress honour intuition and process – music emerges on the fly or is spun from long periods of playing and sharing; talking and swapping. Their compelling narratives are dark and light by turns, cellos sing over jagged krauty synth harmonies, electronic glitches interrupt melodic violin lines, handmade percussion and found sound weave among layered vocals and well-directed mischief.
