The transition has been a testing but highly developmental period leading the band to explore new styles and new ways of conveying their passion for music making. ‘This Table Changes Everything’, written during that transition, celebrates the power of the everyday, the normal and the mundane to overcome otherwise overwhelming obstacles. Taking a step back, we see that sharing life with other human beings, symbolised and actualised through the normality of a shared meal, allows us to uncover our own humanity, our own worth. Eating together brings down walls, power structures, egos and facilitates reconciliation. "Take a seat, sit with me, recline and simply be. Take a seat, renounce your 'self', then you'll find you're free”. http://www.clutchingatstraws.com/#!music/c1ppg
