“This April [2020], the animals were coming back to the cities. I love our wild in London, the foxes and badgers – but then sheep, deer and goats started to stray back into the edges of urbanity, in Essex and on the fringes of Swansea and Edinburgh. So I imagined the conversations the animals were having as they acclimatised to the new norm. And of course it flipped the status for the rest of us not in captivity, as we stared out at the wild from our lockdown.”

“Following the spirit. Sweet music to feed the soul. Get it out there, however you can. Channel the past, learn from the young. Check out brother High Llamas.” Sean O’Hagen
