Sansava were Tyneside's masters of beautifully blissed-out instrumentals, coming on like Sigur Ros sharing a bubble bath with Spacemen 3; akin to Mogwai's gear tenderly re-tuning itself long after the band have retired for the evening. Simple, uplifting, beautiful harmonies interspersed with blissed out ambient drone, built from gentle gushes, subtle chord progressions and extremely minimalist percussion.

The band has split since this track was recorded, but another project has arisen from the Sansava ashes: Summer Night Air.
