The four track release (available on bandcamp) is a collection of very different tracks which centre around a subtle synth that allow the quintet to explore quiet eddies and bubbling rivulets with equal finesse.

The dual six stringers hazily weave around the electronica creating the atmospherics of the songs while restful bass and drums sway through the ears with the vocal threading a fine line betwixt the disparate elements of the tracks. While not ripping out the edges of the envelope Baker Island, in the EP, have formulated a release which has a vaguely experimental air and therefore best heard in one, roughly fourteen minutes, sitting to fully enjoy.

By way of a taster of Always, 1995 – the closer Low Cost Locus.
