Here’s a nice surprise: Knitted Abyss is the duo of Lucy Phelan (NOTV, Half High) and Anna John (Holy Balm, Raw Prawn), and this is the first new material they’ve released together for… a very long time. They put out a self-titled CD-R back in 2009, and then a tape if I remember correctly, before disappearing into the usual fug of other side projects, priorities etc. Whatever the case, they’ve reemerged a very different group to what they used to be, with songwriting apparently taking the forefront nowadays. ‘End of Time’ is lovely, but also kinda weird because it’s equal parts bright and drowsy, like a really tired party determined to stay awake. Nothing’s simple, right? Never allow it to be.
