Open Windows, makes a welcome return to a band which doesn’t feature often, though of long stay with the site having first featured in 2012 and always casting dark shadows through the room with this song being of similar countenance of some significant difference, however, the introduction of synths as a forefront to the track which immediately transports the listener through to the likes of early ’80s synthrock music in its retrospective memory plane, with the listener minding they should be adorned in a frilled dress shirt to fully align their frame of narrative.

What was a trio has become a quartet although only Gregory Christopher remains from 2012.

Given the stretch of time and change in line-up with the same vocalist and sense of the sombre there is a surprisingly immediate familiarity to the latest track to surface, which came out on the 19th,  Battleground State (available on bandcamp) as it funereally paces through the room surrounded by deep resonating instrumentation and distinctive vocal cloaking the listener in a dark embrace.
