Released as a Limited Edition double 180g disc pressing with disc 1 WHITE vinyl and disc 2 BLACK for Record Store Day. Riven seen on vinyl for the very first time and is considered by many as one of Nick most accomplished works. Originally released on CD back in 2013, Nick had had the pleasurable experience of recording stints with such highly acclaimed musicians as Lana Del Rey, Newton Faulkner and Steven Wilson, this brought about the Riven recordings. It's a typically eclectic mix of songs and styles, but with a light and a dark side, split down the middle by the title track. So, up front we have 6 minute songs like 'Juicy Fruit Girl' - a staccato paean to late 20th century popular culture with a witty look at things like Postman's Knock, along with 'Love Is Due' a rambling acoustic love story set around baggage in airports and beyond, to lighter tunes like 'Sunshine' inspired by the birth of Harper's son and that round shiny thing recently a feature in the sky in the UK.
