Jeremy (HI54LOFI) A really mellow and laid back listen, with lyrics that work as a nice companion to the internal dialogue that's often running through my head. Favorite track: Liars & Thieves.

Branimir Amazing vocals are the thing that originally drew me to this band. Smooth melodies and a chilly rhythm is the reason why I bought the album.

My first love on the album was the track "Liars and Thieves", progressing slowly towards "Constellation Lines" which became my favourite track on the album.

Great band, with a promising future. Favorite track: Constellation Lines.

kyle mahoney The vocals got me from the first line, then went on a wonderful journey with the band thru the EP.
The sound is beautifully crafted yet nice and simple easy listening.

Cant wait for a full album Favorite track: The Gathering.

about

Twin Oaks Los Angeles, California

"Their sparse approach creates a spaciousness that lets the bittersweet compositions breathe, suffused with the calmness of a sunlit early morning. One could easily describe it as dreamy or blissful, but there's nary a shrouded note - these are songs that pulsate with quiet emotion and golden-hued translucence." - The Deli Mag ... more

Track Name: Liars & Thieves
They'll cut you with their tongues
As a serpent would, on the run
Liars and thieves, they sing to me

Telling stories of a pure romantic world
That isn't real
Taking your guilt out of everything

And don't you dare read too deep
They have secrets that they keep
Out from the lines and ink

They'll build til' kingdom comes
Crumbling down on everyone
Liars and thieves all around me

No doubt that the end will come
As weary eyes seek disguise
When liars and thieves surround me

And don't you dare read too deep
They have secrets that they keep
Out from the lines and ink
Track Name: Find A Way
Take time to unwind, then occupy my mind
To find the ways
Speak slow, drown it out, and bare to me your soul
To find the ways

And they want, let me know.
And they want, tell it all.

Give up on the weight that held you down for days
To find a way
Hold out for yourself, let chaos bring them hell
To find a way

And they want, let me know.
And they want, tell it all.
Track Name: Constellation Lines
We connect like constellation lines
Hard to tell the truth from storyline
Say forgiveness is as sweet as wine

Bend until the will has broken down
Enter in the words, they make no sound
And when the light becomes my only night

With you to my right
The city lights behind
And we'll escape tonight

And we connect line constellation lines
As this road begins its great divide
And the choice can stop the hands of time

With you to my right
The city lights behind
And we'll escape tonight
Track Name: The Gathering
Let's quiet down and turn it around
And I'll keep questioning myself
I've gathered the pieces and dug up the ground
Now I'm just trying to not make a sound

Cover bones with pavement
Let's start gathering
Like new moves for the now

They show their face then stop coming around
And ask you what I've done with myself
Don't say that time is all that you need
Then call it direction. I'll call it defeat.

Cover bones with pavement
Let's start gathering
Like new moves for the now
Track Name: Sea The Sun
It cuts deeper when I fall inside
Drew the line between my reasons and doubts
Gets easy in this state of mind

Fleeing out into the streets again
In need of dull company
Suppress me with your finest gin

Heat rises when I'm in again
Swore it took the thought right out of my head
Keep sinking in the deep again

Slip into another drink again
Feel its warmth deep into my chest
Impress me with your finest grin

There's no going back now
We'll never see the sun
Only battle scars and wounds
Track Name: The Road
Fall into your skin
I'll never wake again
Walking through a dream
That's silent in the end

I finally found a place to call my home
Had to walk this road all alone
I never knew a way to let you in

Push and pull we drift
Out to sea, in the end
When I hear your voice
I'm back to where I began
Track Name: The Lion's Den
It's not the first words, but the last straw
While catching secrets on the deep end
Lock it in the iron cast we set
Finding shelter in the lion's den

So I'll build you up just to let you down
My lonely monument
And I'll build you up just to let you down
My only monument

To the swell, we march with perfect form
At this base of wishful thinking
Bridged with hush, enlightened instrument
And we're playing in this lion's den

So I'll build you up just to let you down
My lonely monument
And I'll build you up just to let you down
My only monument
