After completing the 'Loves young nightmare' ep, ACS wanted to create a much lighter batch of songs making use of simpler chord structures and stripped back instrumentation. The bulk of the ep was recorded by the end of spring 2012 ('surf's up' was recorded in a day) with a view to capturing a relaxed "summery" feel, envisaged by the notion of driving around the countryside of ACS's home town in his Morris Minor. However, having written the songs at the start of the year, lyrically the songs express his feelings of disillusionment that can occur at a certain point in a young persons life/career, coupled with the troubled optimism that can come with trying to start afresh.
PARENTAL WARNING: The song 'Holiday song' contains swearing within the lyrical content.
