This 17-minute collection of 4 new tracks see the trio stride boldly in a refreshing and ambitious new direction while distilling their melodic sophistication and depth of sonic composition further beyond that typically present in today’s rock music.

New realms of stratospheric highs and wistful star-gazing are tempered by deeply introspective moments reminiscent of the solitary wonder of an urban sprawl glimmering in the night.
