Belatedly features collaborations from Khyam Allami, Beck Baker, Sophie Cooper, Thomas Stone and Kazuyuki Kishino (KK Null). Ore is the project of Sam Underwood. Belatedly in his words: The title is derived from the fact that I failed to complete this album the first time around. I started it as a gift to my father when he was diagnosed with lung cancer in late 2014. But I failed to complete it before his death 8 months later. I subsequently aimed to complete it but found that too hard...so had to start the whole thing afresh. This is now ready, Belatedly. Aged 35 – the average age at which fewer cells regenerate than die – Sam Underwood left his previous job to pursue his dream of being a musician. He also put down his guitar, intent on exploring what he hoped would be a rich sound world; a compound formed of doom metal and low brass. Ore was formed. For me, playing the tuba was the first time I really felt a connection – in every sense – with a musical instrument. An extension of my own pipework; my resonant frequency. A truly physical instrument to play.
