The benefits of regular exercise are well documented. In Jarrod Gosling’s case, a daily run around the picturesque Damflask Reservoir, just west of his native Sheffield, helps get both mind and blood pumping. “It gives me a lot of time to come up with ideas,” explains the instrumentalist, best known for his work in electronica duo I Monster, alongside the more prog-leaning Regal Worm and Henry Fool. “In late 2014, I started thinking about doing a psychedelic thing, with eerie female choral vocals, using just organs. A lot of people use synths and guitars for that kind of thing, but I wanted something different.”
