Watch the stop motion short film that this music is based around at:
The Flood of 1924 is a short, stop motion animated film created by Christopher Postill and Colleen Mckeown (aka “We Ain’t Friends”). It took them forever, and they are both now partially insane. Here is the synopsis…
“After a flood has covered her hometown, a young girl makes it her nightly routine to row out into the night in search of signs of her companion. The unusual friends share broken conversations through notes in bottles.”
This EP expands on the short film with 25 minutes of original music that takes listeners through the events occuring just before and during the flood itself. Somewhere between a film score, an experimental folk album, and an old-fashioned radioplay, this album takes listeners further into the world that We Ain’t Friends have created with their film. Listening to this EP feels like listening to a journal; dark, epic and a little lonely, albeit lonely with a wide-eyed protagonist.
