When Bessie Deakin sings “meet me at the Half Moon” she’s not being all cosmic – no, it’s the legendary Half Moon in Putney that she’s referencing. And when she sings “come to the graveyard / it’s where it’s safe / It’s the living not the dead that I can’t face” she evokes depth of sorrow. And when the song takes off in a Fleetwood mac-esque direction ‘Extended in Space‘ explores the possibilities of chance encounters.
For Bessie Deakin wrote the song a day after meeting musician Robert Ransom in that very pub. The track was recorded at Fox Den Studios in Sheffield with producer Chris Wilkinson, and the Fox Den Studio Band. ‘Extended in Space‘ comes from Deakin’s upcoming EP ‘Lady Red,‘ due this Summer.
