Northwest & Nebulous is a lush and accomplished instrumental album suffused with radiant and fluid possibilities where expansively cinematic instrumentals conjure queer cowboy landscapes via the Northern English coastline. The album is a world-building piece of work, pulling from folk, Americana and soundtrack influences, fusing their romantic and exploratory energies to signal the beginning of a new journey for composer, with an open invitation for listeners to come along for the ride.

The album was recorded and mixed by Luce Mawdsley in the Grade II listed Scandinavian Church in Liverpool, with a core chamber trio of Luce on guitar, organ and percussion, Nicholas Branton on clarinets, and Rachel Nicholas on viola.

If the Northwest in the album's title is located in Formby, Nebulousness can be found in Mawdsley's intentions for the record. As a non-binary neurodivergent composer embracing fluidity and unfixed states, the album has become a document for their own changing identity while also inviting listeners to project their own worlds upon these tracks.

Northwest & Nebulous is first and foremost a generous album, where Luce Mawdsley invites listeners to construct their own ideal landscapes inside their music; at a junction where the experimental and the traditional meet.
