Sand – ‘Clay’

Sand is the solo project of Sam Healy of acclaimed back North Atlantic Oscillation.

I had no idea these tracks existed until this morning. Our Song of the Day, ‘Clay’ is taken from his debut album.

Healy is quoted as saying: “I wanted to try something that I could work on entirely alone, with no deadlines or schedules intruding on the process. It was an experiment to see if I could conceive and execute a whole record without any outside influence. I only told few people about it until it was almost complete. I had a sense after the release of Fog Electric that I should try something else before starting on a third NAO album, something with a different feel, a musical palate-cleanser.”

Healy has certainly roamed on the horizon and created an enthralling track. For me it doesn’t so much create an atmosphere, but more a wide open intoxicating space to spend my time in.
