Each track to me sounded perfectly natural, like somehow these songs have always existed somewhere, and yet they were fresh. There is a wistful mood settling over each song, and indeed this is present in the titles themselves which evoke a sense of romance. The melodies are beautiful and endearing. I Can Almost Reach You opens with a vast, rolling drum lead before breaking into the full-on metal foray.
In Is This What You Wanted we get a delicious and dreamy piano blended beautifully and flawlessly within the larger landscape of an ocean wave of guitar and bass. There is a subtle synth sprinkled throughout the whole sonic terrain. Each of these songs was so pleasant I found it hard to choose which to feature. They each contain incredibly strong musician and craftsmanship. It’s palpable and almost tactile. It’s always refreshing to experience metal with a truly sensitive and earnest human touch.
My only complaint? This five track E.P. ended too soon.
