We are pleased to release Yank the Chain, a three-track E.P. by Ruth Angel Edwards and Emily Pope.
"Our initial approach to this residency was to think broadly about what resources were at our disposal and about how that could match up to what we needed, how we could be as maximal as possible with any opportunity we're given. We basically thought that spending our artist fee on a package holiday to the Costa Del Sol would be more inspirational for our work at that time than going to stay in rural Cambridgeshire." - Emily Pope & Ruth Angel Edwards.
