In pastel (available on bandcamp) on hitting play the room is shrouded in a dark introspective tale of internal turmoil which sends shivers up and down the spine as the eviscerating duality of vocals meanders through the ears as though trapped inside leaden boots sinking in to a pool of cement – with the listener being taken through flashes of life reflection spiralling towards ever more morose thought process, whilst in contrast the backdrop of music becomes more positive of mood, prior to finally depleting in to surfacing bubbles of final breath captured by spluttering keyboard resting to a silence that lingers in the mind.

There is a delightful slightly detuned and discordant connectivity betwixt the vocal and underpinning analogue synth which underpins the music – though rather than finding the listener reaching for earbuds to wax their own ears to discover if in fact it is their own timpani which have lost the plot – in the dissonant weaves of sound they discover themselves luxuriating in the warming glows of the compositions.

From the forthcoming album album – Fallen Star.

Within the quietly flowing just under three quarters of an hour thirteen track release (available on bandcamp) threads succulent distorted bass that shakes the dust out of the sub-woofers and by way of an introduction the second song – which demands a full speaker system with charged melodies on all channels – Ordered And Filed from a body of work which needs full play-through for context.
