alan clark I don't know why stripped down lo-fi works so well with a Scottish accent, maybe cos it sounds so genuine - that's allegedly why they often use Scottish voice overs in finance ads.
Anyway this is a peach of an EP that deserves wider exposure - I'm shocked but personally delighted to see copies of the ltd edition EP still available. Favorite track: This Star.

Track Name: January Light / Still Quiet Voice
Let’s have it out, O glorious doubt
This faith all wrapped in glass
And shameless sin, Earth-shattering
All broken parts to task

Saved for me now

January light, confound my sight,
Confuse these travelling eyes
And safer this, oh calm dismiss,
I set my heart on ice

Hands to lie, first breath taken
Shame to die, we stand up
Day to dawn, sunlight breaking
Hold on, re this hope for charis matter

So we are too young, to be talking in tongues?
But your still quiet voice is wreaking havoc with my lungs
And we’re too far gone, to be moved by that song
But it’s the harder part of feeling while we’re singing along

What part of me, so dark unseen?
O trail light up and be shown
For grander plans, All carved in hands
All heart, all body and all soul

All stand, first one over
Raised hands. We are it
Stay for now, silence breaking
Show me how, re this hope for charis matter

We are too safe to be scared of our graves
But the funny thing with fear, it’s always coming in waves
We’re never too old, to be bothered by the cold
But your majesty percolates through stories retold
Track Name: Devotion
I’ve been in this place before, it’s not a million miles away from home, it’s just a million miles away from home
Not sure where I’m supposed to be, does it help that I can’t see, just what they’re doing to me?

That man won’t give them half a chance; he says forgiveness is key, he shot them down at the first dance
Well I hear that grace and mercy are mine, but all I see is fear and it’s not for the first time.

"Did I survey this cross for long enough?
Or drink enough wine from this cup?"

Did you get what you came here for?

Well you’re entitled to your own opinion, but we can’t all be right, it wouldn’t make sense then
I’m just worried about this permanent emotion. You can’t fabricate the lived for Devotion.

Well I hope you find which way is up,
And I mean that from the bottom of my polystyrene cup.

Did you get what you came here for?

All this time you’re talking in a language of rules
Holding them up because it feels like you should
Seems you can’t wait to get out of that door
Did you get what you came here for?

Alleluia
Track Name: This Star
This star, this star, is all you mean to me
This star, this star, is falling down on me
This ache I bore, is barely keeping me awake
I woke, my soul to sing no more

Now I think we need some solid ground
We need a little help to get out
It’s bound to pour, your hands are cold, you’re freezing, well so am I.

You can’t take anything, not where we’re going
I’ll breathe for the both us, to great unknown

This way we go with careful passenger
In play. In tow. In silent slow motion
We crash, unfold, in warmer parts than that
We say, we've known, our lives unravelling

Now I think we need some solid ground
We need a little help to get out
It’s bound to pour, your hands are cold, you’re freezing, well so am I

You can’t take anything, not where we’re going
I’ll breathe for the both of us, to great unknown
The air’s so thin up there, it’s fading faster
We’ll find a stronger star, save yours for after
Track Name: You Are
You are loved by greater love than mine
You are held in stronger hands
And while we try to kiss this thing goodbye
Know that love lasts forever

Table set, banner raised on high
Hope on hold for this time
I am torn, your door still in half sight
No flag left to fly

And I’ll stand beside you in the rain,
Hold your hand in the colder days, because I’d want you there
And this I know, we'd cope much better in warmer weather
We could belove if we go back to when we learned handstands together.

You are loved by greater love than mine
You are held in stronger hands
