The Stranger and the Hightide might be seen as a weird place to go following A Boat on the Sea, musically speaking. It’s a sidequest of sorts, abandoning the oceanic depths for tumbleweed and dust—favoring a more simplistic approach to its instruments and compositions. The truth of the matter is; we have far too many songs flying about, and many of them sound too radically different to feature on one of our main albums. But they still deserve a home, so they will be released as EPs. There will be many more EPs in the future, but this particular one has a connection to our next main album—a connection we will not divulge here!

The Stranger and the Hightide has a western rock-feel. Twangy guitars, Hammond Organ, vintage tape machines, and a decidedly more “live” sound to it. It was mixed by returning cowboy Mike Watts and mastered by Karl Klaseie, Øra Mastering. The artwork was done by Thomas Falla Eriksen, evoking the style of the French surrealist Moebius, and the aesthetics of French graphic novels from the 1970s.
