“I am excited to share my first EP, ‘Bad Company’. This collection of songs weremostly written and recorded in my lounge room, and in between gorging myself on ramen on a recent trip to Japan. My good friend Golden Vessel co-produced and mixed the EP and the cover art is a photograph I took in the front room of my house last winter.Thetitle-track is about finding forgiveness when relationships don’t go the way good intentions would hope for. Sometimes things in life just don’t work out like we planned but there is so much beauty to be found in the process of releasing someone from feeling guilt, including yourself. The song also touches on an element of duality with ‘bad company’ referencing nostalgic memories of employment from my youth. Working at something more whole heartedly than a mindless, replaceable role would dictate and youthful dreaming of breaking out of that mold.” –Emerson Leif
