about

The album is beautiful. From the lucid instrumental of Children beneath which a playground of joyful children’s voices are heard, to the hidden anti-war track George that includes the lyrics “put down all the guns that shot your heart out”.

To escape the trappings of urban living, Tomorrow I Might Go - which was named after the bNet single Tommy received national recognition for - was recorded in the band’s makeshift recording studio at Bethell’s Beach, west of Auckland.

“It’s [the album title] a clue to the possibility that the band may be gone in the near future. It also eludes to the reality that I will be pursuing music overseas next year.”

Meanwhile Tomorrow I Might Go isn’t dissimilar to the group’s 2004 debut album 4000 Years.

“It is composed of two halves that differ not only in their musical genres but also in the content of their lyrics,” Benefield says. “The dance music on this album is more down beat, fused with dub and reggae, while the dance numbers on 4000 Years tended to be fast ska numbers.”

"This album is stunning; let’s hope tomorrow never comes." - Dawn Tratt, February 2007
