Quartz is the third album from Fader, a duo consisting of Neil Arthur and Benge, whose work includes his own solo albums, co-production with Gazelle Twin and Blancmange, plus being a member of three other critically acclaimed bands - Wrangler, Creep Show and John Foxx And The Maths.

As with their 2017 debut First Light, the music for the new album was recorded and mixed at Benge's Memetune Studios while Arthur worked on lyrics, vocals and some additional sounds in his home studio.

Quartz is a reflective, elegiac record that has the elegance of clockwork and a structure where all the parts fit together in subtle detail.

There are references to time but the spiralling melodic patterns that form the basis of the songs paradoxically create a sense of timelessness.
