Champagne In Seashells
Recorded in April at Roundhead studios in Auckland New Zealand on the same analogue equipment that captured I'll Be Lightning, Champagne in Seashells is bigger and bolder, revealing new lyrical complexities and pointing in daring new musical directions. It also marks the debut studio collaboration between Liam and live cohort Eliza-Jane. The self produced EP was mixed by legendary sonic wiz Tchad Blake (Tom Waits,
Gomez, Pearl Jam).

Lead single Long Way To Go encapsulates the magical dynamic of Liam and E-J's chaotic live show whilst tackling the anxieties of air travel, life on the road and homesickness.
