Bannered Mare have two EP's out currently. The first, titled 'Gizzards' is a meloncholie and reflective record that dissects loneliness and the mistakes that lead to it. Gizzards was a step in a different direction for Padfield which ultimatly lead him back to his musical roots on the second release, titled 'Fear of missing out'.Fear of missing out is a record about maintaining happiness and a good head space, while seeing friends and peers progress in life while feeling that he was stuck in the mud. The record is full of big movements and a whole lot of energy.
