'ep2' is a technicoloured, melody-laden, emotional, late-night drive alone. It is a part of mcconville's ongoing experimentation with vocals, continuing to explore the voice as the prime instrument, manipulating vocal recordings digitally, opening them up into new sonic planes in a digital pop context.
'ep2' is a story told out of order about ending up alone in a city at night. The music represents the feeling you get when you’re in a strange place - probably drunk and have been separated from everyone you are meant to be with. The feeling when you’re in a place that’s really full and the streets are full of those flashing neon lights and open signs from chippies and pubs and you’re just completely alone.
