In Autumn 2020, Keaton released a new solo record, Monument. It was a fragile, meditative and emotional unravelling of grief in the aftermath of losing his father. For all its hushed acoustics, Monument cocooned its emotion in some beautifully tender melodies and acute observations. A warm and relatable listen. Here, the Fragments EP acts as an indirect companion piece to Monument.

Written at a similar time to the album, its lyrics stray from Monument’s poignant subject matter, but in sound and atmosphere it feels entwined. The seven tracks that form the Fragments EP orbit a sweeping kaleidoscope of sonic shapes, shades and textures. Keaton’s voice offers lyrics in an almost frozen romanticism. It’s a voice that sounds rooted in turmoil but also of strength. A happy sadness. Bleakly beautiful. Fragments EP and Monument are two fine bodies of work by this singular, unique British artist, and two empathetic records of sorrow and strength.
