Another Turn: Collected EPs
FOUR EPS, FOUR SEASONS
"A unique series that is as enjoyable as it is moving" - Stationary Travels
"With the September EP, Garreth Broke and Anna Salzmann began a project to cope with and comment on the stages of grief, portrayed in the different seasons. Following the first EP came three more – December, March, and June. With Garreth’s heartfelt pieces ringing with accuracy relevant to each season and Anna’s incredible, abstract paintings so clearly following each note of each piece, the project has been a joy to keep up with." - Piano & Coffee Co.
Released by 1631 Recordings.
Just after the crowdfunding campaign finished, Garreth's mother - who had suffered from depression off-and-on for almost 15 years - took her own life.
The album was heavily influenced by this trauma, something that is particularly evident in the tracks 'Coping Mechanism', 'Waking at 2am to Grief' and the centrepiece of the album, 'Mum'.
Garreth subsequently wrote about the experience of losing a parent to suicide in a Facebook post that went viral and was re-published in the UK national press. This led to some work with Samaritans UK and an article published on Huffington Post for World Suicide Prevention Day 2016.
