|Josh Pyke by Naomi Hart|
Before reaching these fair shores he released the UK single ‘Leeward Side’ (which for those lacking any knowledge of sailing is the direction downwind from a point of reference). It is an allegory for moving on from a past relationship in a positive way and maybe with a quick escape.
The new album hit #7 in the ARIA Album Chart back home, and explores ideas of desire, death and legacy using Josh's unique musical vocabulary. As with previous albums, this is not only a period of time in his life but an exploration of the catalysts and the bookends that close our personal chapters. Exeter embraced the talented Josh Pyke and there is no end in sight for their relationship, he is welcome back anytime.
