In a personal tributary EP to his new wife Lauren, Hampshire, UK based artist Tom Honey (Good Weather For An Airstrike) has put together this short but warm set of sounds to preserve what is to be a landmark year for the couple.
Field recordings throughout were taken during a warm weekend's walking around Winchester and the individually assigned images for each track were taken by Lauren.
Whilst Tom has laid out a special sentimental attachment to this EP, it is for us whatever we wish it to be. Perhaps some listeners will relate to this sentiment themselves whilst others may wish to draw light from its warmth as the summer months lie ahead.
Some of you will recognise Good Weather For An Airstrike after the release of 'Underneath The Stars' on Hibernate, earlier this year.

For those of you that are new to the Good Weather For An Airstrike sound, let this EP be your starting point, a special commemorative gift shared by the artist.
