Easily her finest work to date, the 11-track LP is as emotionally cohesive as it is narratively vague, with Pollock's rich and stately voice guiding the listener through a litany of hardships that touch on everything from illness and motherhood to the cruel slap of adolescence.

Chemikal Underground. Melodies are intricate and the vocals are confident and emotional. I’m not sorry that you’re gone, the hell we raised was always fun but I’m not sorry that you’re gone

When Emma Pollock sinks her teeth into a theme, she explores its every facet. Harperfield" is a reference to Pollock's childhood home, which acts as a physical shell for the themes encased within the album.

It seeks to understand love and loss – it is the sound of the sadness of time passing wrapped up in the sweetest soundtrack. The songs examine the history that pulses through familial veins, each chapter consolidating the singer's well established ability to encase flawless storytelling in enchanting melodies and razor sharp stanzas  . Lyrically, this album is Pollock's most accomplished work, with a cohesive thread throughout. Her elegant vocals are given the appropriate centre stage reverence, thanks in part to the talents of her husband and producer Paul Savage. From The Velvet Underground guitar licks that pepper 'In The Company Of The Damned', the acoustic reflection of 'Dark Skies', to the unmistakable strums and plucks of RM Hubbert ('Monster In The Pack'), it is a truly beautiful record that proves Pollock's artistic relevance now more than ever.
