John Mitchell is a man who isn't afraid to stir things up, and surprise people. So, while 'Please Come Home', the 2015 debut album from Lonely Robot, set a very high standard of excellence, new album 'The Big Dream' isn't in any way restricted by what has gone before. “Not at all,” insists Mitchell, who is very much the driving force behind this album in all sense of the term. “I never feel like I have to do things in a certain way just because of what's been done before. For me, doing a project like this is very fulfilling. It allows me to be totally in control of what I create.” As with its predecessor, 'The Big Dream' is not a concept album, but there is a core theme running right through it, and one that sees The Astronaut, the central character in this on-going adventure, emerging from a long period in stasis. “The Astronaut wakes up from a cryogenic sleep,” explains Mitchell. “But he's no longer in space. Instead, he finds himself in a woodland area, where he comes across people who have animal heads! It's a little surreal, and I suppose it mirrors 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' to some extent. This is something of a solipsistic haze, for want of a better description!”
