4 stars An ambitious project created with psychedelic attitude, based at the beginning of their music, to pure experimentation after a lot of musical material accumulated. The band was founded by two brothers, Sean and Kevin respectively on voice and bass / keyboards. Nothing special someone could say, but the fantastic thing is that all their material is produced and recorded in their living home!

Their sound, as they define themselves, is a "psychedelic post wave" essentially based on a drums and bass work. But there's to say that their first works must be heard better with a neutral ear, far from prejudices and sub-genre labelling. Infact is so hard to judge without influences this band, so I try however to listen to this EP, and I had a great surprise! I have always a lot of expectations for psychedelic rock, is one of my favorite genres of music, but often I have bad surprises because I find nothing that capture my interest. Now is not necessary to describe all the tracks, (I will do it when they'll release their next album), but I can say briefly that here they has achieved a certain maturity. The sound follow a musical line more defined. All is enriched by some electronic atmospheres that masterfully fills in the blanks, especially for voice that appear intricate and merged perfectly with the original psychedelic idea. The powerful bass is constant and in line with drum session.

Is possible to find several aspects that recalls to THE MARS VOLTA (this influence is more marked) , or some lonely OMAR RODRIGUEZ LOPEZ's album. The voice is not exactly like that of The Mars Volta's singer, but has got some similar effects.

An interesting project in general, and here a good work wearing the new psychedelia with many good ideas, created by three young musicians with clear ideas. A musical line with a own identity, absolutely more comprensible (fortunately!) compared to their previous music to appreciate them better.

4 Stars - The achievement of their maturity.
