Track 16

"Boyd's Tower"

Below The Radar exclusive

An exclusive track from the Australian-born musician behind the literary outfit The Doomed Bird Of Providence, Mark Kluzek states:

"The track refers to Boyd's Tower near Eden, a coastal town in New South Wales. The tower was built in 1847 and was designed by marine artist Oswald Brierly as a lighthouse. Deemed not fit for purpose, it was used instead to alert the local whaling station of the presence of whales. The song features Mark Kluzek on accordion and piano, Katie English on cello and flute as well as Richard Acton on guitar."
