Description

Written and recorded in lockdown, ‘See You On the Other Side: A Postcard from April 2020’ features seven songs, including See You When I’m Looking At You, the nine-minute chain song Mick conceived in early April and spent a month working on with friends Angie Hart (Frente), Nick Barker, Vikki Thorn (The Waifs), Darren Hanlon, Shelley Short, Alana Jagt, Brooke Russell, Van Walker, Ron S. Peno (Died Pretty), Alannah Russack (The Hummingbirds), Ben Salter, Dana Gehrman, Cam Butler & Jen Anderson.   “I’ve never, ever written just songs for one album – I write songs to write songs,” he says.  Commenced early April & released late June…Even for a prolific musician who has been making music for three decades, this kind of turnaround is unheard of. It’s particularly impressive considering that it was never Thomas’ intention to write a record in isolation.  He originally sent his snippet of the track ‘See You When I’m Looking At You’ to Hart to build on and, after hearing her interpretation, he sent it to Barker before adding a few more verses himself. From there, it became a beast of its own as he began to get more musicians on board to blindly add their own chapters to the song. “Rather than have each person hear what had gone on before them, I just let them go with the original idea and found it really fascinating that there’s certain words that just keep cropping up…..like ‘dreams’, and there are projections into the future”  An instant classic!!
