Here is a video for ‘Rhombus’, the title track of my recent EP with the same name, recorded live at a recent edition of the Shindig concert series at CB1 Cafe, Cambridge. The video includes some great haunting sequences by video artist Naomi Jones-Morris’ installation titled ‘Nightscapes’. Big thanks to Naomi, and to editor Wes Freeman-Smith!
