This project is an exploration of what characterises the essence of a composition and how radically arrangements can differ while maintaining the same core idea. In 'Reworks', the words and melody remain largely unchanged, but all other ingredients are up for an overhaul. The result recognises the work of the past, while looking forward to the next steps in the band's journey together.
Singer and songwriter Nick Rasle explains: 'After years of being performed, the arrangement of a song can come to feel stuck in time, its stylistic choices reflecting a version of ourselves we don't quite recognise anymore. Yet something remained in the DNA of these four songs that we weren't quite ready to throw away. On this EP we imagined we were arranging them for the first time, bringing in our current ideas and influences to give them a new lease of life'.
Me and My Friends have released three critically acclaimed albums, featuring on BBC Radio 2, 4 and 6 in the UK, as well as receiving heavy rotation on FiP and Radio Nova in France.
