There is a graceful turn of mood which filters in to the room on hitting play to the eleven track album (available on bandcamp) as the gentle brushes of drum loops flow in slightly different revolution to the underlying electronica giving the output a slightly glitch feel while the measured vocals deftly wield a silk sheen to the compositions affording the songs a rumpled massage in which the listener wants to scrub their spinal column whilst exhaling in pleasured breath.

The penultimate track is Relation.

A ten track album (available on bandcamp) which travels broadly with some material being founded in mathematical-rock, in soul and pitching in to indie-rock, yet all brushed with a distinctive style and delivery that forms a cohesive gel coating the disparity of the journey.

My selection of the release being the fifth track – 42.

The latest LP to be released – Тайный Оптимист (Secret Optimist) – available on bandcamp – is a fourteen track, roughly one hour and four minutes, journey in which the audience senses they themselves are in danger of becoming the Mad Hatter.

While individual songs, typically running to over four minutes each, are not individually overladen with psychotropics it is the accumulation of the collection of quiet hallucinogen which leaves the mind forming its own fantastical parallel existence.

The fifth song is В саду (In The Garden).
