rjprock Read an article in Metal Hammer (July 2017) and checked it out. 'Filter' just blew me away from the start. Awesome band deserving of bigger things to come hopefully. Favorite track: Filter.

KREePyKiDD It is hard to pick a favorite track because they are all amazing! It was almost like listening to Incubus S.C.I.E.N.C.E for the first time and then realizing that Make Yourself was just as great an album! Like I said on your YouTube channel "You guys got the mixture right" and I meant it. I look forward to your full length album after this EP because 4 songs from you guys just isn't enough, granted these 4 will never get old but I WANT MORE!!! Favorite track: Filter.

Track Name: Filter
FILTER

Water rises
The world professises the end of days for us all
The saturated statistics
But sceptics requested the right to be involved

Buried deep in a wealth of distractions
With starlights and plot holes galore
Null and void to decipher and filter the haze between the real and the fake

You tarred it up in to and hence considered it dealt with
The problem pile extends for miles
It seems evidently that..

Words that warn scatter round in the wind like confetti in a parade
Thrown about with no hesitant doubt
With a smile fixed in their face
Fear prescribed will no disrupt the vibe that we try to live day to day
Despite your advice it all sounds like the price someone else ought to pay
While we dance the night away

Gravity won't ever pull with the weight that everybody was trying to convey
Couldn't crack our commitment to how we play

Words that warn scatter round in the wind like confetti in a parade
Thrown about with no hesitant doubt
With a smile fixed in their face
Fear prescribed will no disrupt the vibe that we try to live day to day
Despite your advice it all sounds like the price someone else ought to pay
While we dance the night away

Gravity won't ever pull with the weight that everybody was trying to convey
Couldn't crack our commitment to how we play
Track Name: Desolate
DESOLATE

I can't relate
How long did you dedicate
You pursued with a relentless faith
You create
How could you feel the same when the tidal wave came to reset the slate?
Desolate?

Where my composure dies
You stand so dignified
Well, I know how hard you tried
And oh, how I admired it all

I couldn't have been more surprised to find in your eyes a small trace of anything, other than grace
Your pride perspires with a fire you can't erase
How could you know?
How could you ever rise above?
Revive the drive that inspired the spark
If you have no choice, why not rejoice?

Where my composure dies
You stand so dignified
Well, I know how hard you tried
And oh, how I admired it all

How could..

Where my composure dies
You stand so dignified
Well, I know how hard you tried
And oh, how I admired it all
Track Name: Vice
VICE

I saw the prize cemented dry
I set my sights high enough to paraglide
Aligned to sacrifice through strife
To benefit and better life
With focus so relentless and undoubtably crystal clear
My vision to engineer
Then fate egnited lightning in my way

You arrived
My heavy handed bride
Pulverised by your eyes invite
Be my candy coated vice

I pulled the pin
Receded in
Regretted everything, but still accepted sin
Now drained, insane and tightly chained
Denial over self proclaimed restraint

Let me feed
Reciprocation few and far between

You arrived
My heavy handed bride
Pulverised by your eyes invite
Be my candy coated vice

Every whim so singlular
I obsessively endure
Every nuance, every word
I obsessively endure

Primal nature aggressively obeys
I can't remember before you arrived

My heavy handed bride
Pulverised by your eyes invite
Be my candy coated vice
Track Name: Emoticonic
EMOTICONIC

I’m fairly tired of these tainted templates
The ones we edit green
Leave the entrails for the floor
You're the polished highlight reel
So farcical that it makes my head spin

I'm fairly aware of the expectation
The unspoken etiquette
Of painting portraits too pristine
Perceptions I'd believe

No one will question my mirage
Cut and carve out a clean collage
The truth will never make the mould
A likeness to broadcast across the world

I realise denial is a common thread here
A choice to exercise
To keep the character divine
My unparalleled design

No one will question my mirage
Cut and carve out a clean collage
The truth will never make the mould
A likeness to broadcast across --

Painting portraits so pristine
Overloaded on a branded fever dream

No one will question my mirage
Cut and carve out a clean collage
The truth will never make the mould
A likeness to broadcast across the world
Broadcast across the world
