Autumn Ritual is directly inspired by Louis MacNeice’s epic 1938 poem Autumn Journal, drawing on themes of loss, self-deprecation, and the futility of human rituals in the face of approaching catastrophe. Lyrical inspiration other than the poetry of MacNeice is diverse, drawing on folk horror, the books of Iain Sinclair and John Higgs, and a peculiarly British strain of ennui and sadness that has been a focus of writers and poets for hundreds of years, that Robert Macfarlane calls ‘English Eerie’ – “the skull beneath the skin of the countryside”.

Autumn is the season that most inspires melancholy, as the euphoria of the summer heat fades and the nights draw in. This song is about revelling in that melancholy; sadness as an outlet for reflection, a memento mori. Autumn is also the last vestige of light before the dark of winter; as the world seems to move ever closer to the brink of disaster, whether through politics, divisive views, or climate change, the song seeks to address the uselessness of old rituals that once seemed vital and important but are now pointless, even ridiculous, in the face of such chaos.
