Limited edition pink vinyl.
Insides are Julian Tardo and Kirsty Yates. They first recorded together in the early 90s as Earwig, and released an album, Under My Skin I am Laughing, which brought them to the attention of 4AD. Earwig morphed into Insides and two further albums were released on 4AD’s Guernica imprint: Euphoria (1993) and Clear Skin (1994). In 2019 Euphoria was reissued for US Record Store Day by Beacon Sound, and was hailed as a lost treasure by discerning outlets.
Soft Bonds is Insides’ first release for 20 years. It’s the sound of heart-stopping slow motion, blood rushes, fingers digging into bruised flesh, and sleeping with clenched fists.
