The universe began about fifteen billion years ago, in almost absolute simplicity, and it’s been getting more and more complex ever since. This movement from the simple to the complex is built into the web and weave of the universe, and it’s called the tendency toward complexity. We’re the products of this complexification, and so are the birds, and the bees, and the trees, and the stars, and even the galaxies of stars…” – Gregory David Roberts, ‘Shantaram’ (2003)
Originally from Aotearoa and based out of the UK, this EP marks the first official release of music under Bridget’s own name, though she’s been fronting bands since 2013, taking the stage at a number of iconic international venues and festivals including Glastonbury, Boomtown, Sono Centrum, Latitude, Estragon Club, Subsonic, Auckland Arts Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe.
With three full-length tracks and a sprinkle of other treats and stories, “The Tendency Toward Complexity” is a throwdown capturing a mix of heartfelt smiles and tasty, tasty grooves. Recorded at Wax Studios in East London, the EP is being mastered by the incredible Mandy Parnell (Bjork, Sigur Ros, PJ Harvey, Aphex Twin) at Black Saloon Studios. Joined on stage and in the studio with a line-up of killer artists from across Europe, Bridget's new booty-shaking soul-pop is all about bringing people together and spreading a little PMA in these shady and complex times.
