Anybody Out There, invites the listener in to a combination of pulsating electronica and subsumed instrumentation in which to roll around in a meadow akin to a frolicking puppy, whilst a temptress of vocal beguilingly hails from distant corner, akin to a horse whisperer settling down frayed nervous temperament.

Anybody Out There has the ability to coexist both the passion of first kiss and the measured maturity of the averted knee trembler in some dark back-alley with alluring promise of mutual, relaxed and unhurried satisfaction – we will only have to await for another twenty days to embrace… be assured the Extended Play will be worth the wait.

I had the option of either the demo version or the fully mastered and lengthier version to share with you – as so often is the case – I find myself allured by the more raw revision.

A ten track album (available on bandcamp) which contemplates, in damning indictment, of a world where far too many want to merely capture things to share with their disconnected silos of connectivity in pursuit of ‘likes’ of what they are witnessing, rather than becoming involved in anything at all other than a passive commentator of dissociation whilst bemoaning of their own self-perceived undeserved paucity of life.

The first track to surface and the opener on Forced Witness is Candy May.
