Tell us about yourselves.
Wavy guitar tones on top of intricate bass work, while kick and snare produce a solid groove. Toms are rattled with intensity but get balanced out by an array of electric piano taps. Vocals come as calculated lines of melody and lyric, both passionately belted and rhythmically uttered. Tempos range from panicky musical zigzags, to steadily moving auras of the mellow and mystic.
More generally, we're a five-piece who have interests in genres such as dark pop, 80s groove, grunge, and modern electro, though we've yet to incorporate synthesisers in our live act.
