CUTS - Pollen

'Pollen' - taken from CUTS' debut album 'A Gradual Decline'. 

“I wrote this track the day after I heard Glenn Branca had died. I wanted to do something with mainly guitars and ended up layering them up in a sort of Steve Reich type counterpoint. I wanted to recreate something gentle. I had this image of a flower’s  stamen blowing in the breeze. I got the camera out and filmed flowers and their stamen in my back garden and then scored the piece to that footage. In 2016 the UN warned that 40% of global pollinators faced extinction. That’s a frightening prospect.” - Anthony Tombling Jr, CUTS
