limited copies come with 'ternion aside' bonus disc - a tom whb album rework. 'ternion', from the latin for a group of three, sees we have band make a stylistic leap on from their debut 'whb', which despite its critical acclaim the band were keen not to repeat. moving forward meant a radical change in how the band approached writing the new album. from the music through to the lyrics they wanted to create something 'timeless', and so they began to look inward, mining the experiences that they had shared as their career had taken off. the result is a very different record, an intensely personal album that manages to be both uplifting and melancholic. gone are the nonsense lyrics replaced by frank and honest accounts of their relationships, struggles to make sense of the world around them and the effect, both physical and emotional, of a life on the road. musically too, 'ternion' reveals a very different band to the one who first burst onto the scene in 2008. the increased use of live instrumentation and extra time spent getting every sound just right with ex clor member and foals producer luke smith at his flesh and bone studios in london shines through every song.
