‘Beyonds’ is the forthcoming EP by Twig Pigeon. It’s a collection of songs relating to the trials and tribulations of making decisions, the anxieties that come as part of that, acting on your emotions and the effects this can have on yourself and the people around you. The EP was written, recorded, produced and mixed over the last two years by Twig Pigeon in Auckland, NZ, Wanganui and Wellington.
“It has been a long process for me on this record. Dealing with big changes in my life and going through some significant learning experiences along the way. I felt when this EP was complete, the time searching for the most authentic sonic representation of what I have been going through was worth it. The EP is a step by step reaction through the initial anxiety of something you’re going through, towards the outcome; where you emerge as a stronger and more resilient person of who you were when you began. Treating what can feel like a challenging emotionally driven ending as an inspirational beginning to what is ahead for you.”
