Hello Friends, here is my last EP, entitled “WITHOUT” – only digital, but sill, please listen and tell me what you think. And here is the story behind the music.

It all started in September 2017 when I was thinking about rehearsing with my post-punk band Restless Astronaut for a show. News of my father’s death came early in the morning while I was driving my car. I had to turn around and go the the hospital, stay strong for my mother and family, start preparations for the funeral. It was not easy, but as the only son, this was my duty. I had to postpone the time of mourning. But there was more bad news that autumn. Exactly one month later, Michał, one of my best high school friends passed away as well. I was devastated – we shared so many good memories: parties, sailing, hiking mountains and hitchhiking across the whole country. Furthermore, my father, Michał and I shared the same love for skiing. We skied together in the Polish mountains, in the Alps, we passed the ski-instructor certificates. It was simply impossible to believe that those two guys, who meant so much to me were dead. It was very difficult to talk about those emotions, so I simply took my guitar and started recording in the living room, the kitchen, the studio.

The music on this EP is composed using a guitar with effects, pedals, loops and processing. No other sounds were used. I wanted to use just one instrument, in the same way we three shared love for the guitar sounds.

Here is the BandCamp link. As this is a very personal release I don’t want to charge money for it – you can download it for FREE. But if you think that a little support in this time of loss is a good idea – I am really grateful!
