We started recording these tracks in early 2019. This is our first work produced by Dan Lucas and we can’t him enough. His work is absolutely brilliant and he made us sound just like we expected to in our heads, but even better. Another amazing highlight about Ellipsis is that Sofia Martins AKA Starsha Lee, an artist we love and admire immensely, let us use her art on the front cover.
This release marks a transition period for the band so we felt like it had to come out now while all these thoughts and feelings are still fresh. Most of these songs were crafted on the road playing at dive bars. They sound heavier and darker with deeper layers and textures. It feels almost as if the instruments are amplifying and projecting our state of mind. You might find some unexpected melodies and time signatures In comparison with our previous album Road Rage.
Ellipsis has 5 tracks including the single SWEATSHOP. We think the lyrical themes on this EP are very much related to this constant feeling of "I can’t believe this is still happening in this day and age" we have every time we watch the news. The ‘Ellipsis’ are pretty much like a deep breath, a hesitation, a face palm moment. 'What do you want?’ has a more personal approach and talks about anxiety; ’Sweatshop’ picks on consumerism; ‘Ellipsis’ is about this culture of fear we live in; ‘Rotten’ is a reality check; And ‘Closure’ is about dealing with loss and trying to cope with the fact that all things come to an end.
Ellipsis will be released on the 6th December 2019.
