“Sekian Lama” is simple and lyrical for the most part, before building into something richer and more complex towards the end. Devreney is a confident and powerful singer, and her skill gives Matlan all the freedom of musical expression he needs, to achieve what he wants with this track.

CALUM: To be a musician is a combination of stupidity and obsessiveness. I started playing from about seven. From about 11 to 18 I did nothing else but play.

I think that’s what happens with albums, they change; you start writing something but later it ends up being something else.”
