POSTCODE guitarist Mikie Daugherty has put on his Nanaki hat and released the EP Afterlight on Small Bear Records.
The five tracks were recorded last autumn while Postcode was regrouping with a new drummer.
Mikie explained: "Back in the early-to-mid part of the last decade Nanaki was an instrumental post-rock-type band based on the Isle of Man, at a time that such a thing was not really deemed socially acceptable in the local scene.
"Known for our intense performances and excessive volume, Nanaki only released one album in its lifetime, the exceedingly limited-edition Fashion Is The Enemy Of All Art, back in The Summer Of Rock, 2003. That record predated the existence of Nanaki as a full band, having been written and recorded by myself and, on some songs, bassist Emma Ryan before the addition of extra personnel to the line-up."
The new EP was recorded in a similar manner, with all instrumentation being handled by Mikie, with no intention to return to live performance with other musicians.
He added: "Perhaps less obviously post-rock than the live band had been, Afterlight also sees Nanaki explore new areas, including experimentation with tempo changes and, in Saint Alessa, a 'concept' piece of sorts."
