“‘The Ultimate Nothing’ came about from a demo… recorded many years ago and from there it just kind of evolved,” Parish said.

“It was about being present and just sitting with your breathing and processing your thoughts and being present and mindful. I feel as though people need that more than ever now with how turbulent the world is.”

Parish discussed ‘The Ultimate Nothing’ further, hinting at a forthcoming album. “I wanted it [‘The Ultimate Nothing’] as a kind of interlude on the upcoming album but once I’d recorded and mixed it I felt as though it was too good to be some filler.”

The track dropped along an official music video featuring 70s-style animations and cosmic graphics.

On the concept behind the idea for People Taking Pictures and how it ties in with his love for visuals, Parish said, “Part of the whole journey of People Taking Pictures for me has also been creating videos in a very similar way to how the music is made, by kind of layering lots of different things and kind of making these VHS looking clips.

“This one I really tried to teach myself some animation more than relying on lots of external content.”
