What has become far more than a side project for its members, Minor Victories unveils the real essence of what a group of talented individuals unshackled by convention can attain. Brought together by brief meetings, mutual acquaintances and overall serendipity, MINOR VICTORIES created this album together by swapping ideas, songs, fragments and finished recordings via broadband connections. The freedom and immediacy in this exchanging of ideas - plus the fact that all four members have barely spent any time together recording or writing - only adds to the heart of the project. This unusual process, combined with the members’ wide spectrum of musical tastes converging, ultimately led to something beyond the original vision of any of the contributors that pushes new boundaries and new sounds into uncharted waters.
“Starting a band where some of the people have never met each other is something I’ve never heard of,” says Stuart. James adds, “I’ve made a record with people I’d never have imagined I would have the chance to work with,” while Rachel describes it as “the most exciting thing I’ve done to date.” As for Justin, whose itch began the whole process, he still hasn’t quite worked out what his little noise EP has become but is beginning to think that, “we’ve stealthily made the record I always have wanted to make without me actually realizing it.”
