AND, 20: Steady Boil

Is kettle-tronica a thing? I ask because my last album also had a song made from a boiling kettle. This track differs in featuring a kettle that whistles but, like the earlier one, uses only manipulated sounds from the recording to make the resulting track.

Although, if you watch the video above, you'll see a finger snap and hand clap are used for percussion.

This track closes AND because the whistling kettle causes some anxiety among tea-drinkers. I wonder if it doesn't also produce a Pavlovian response and they start salivating at the idea of a cuppa. Anyway, I thought it best to minimise the risk it would cause a listener to turn off the album.

The title is a nod to the track Slow Boil on my first album, SHAKES.
