As Miles Davis said

“Music is the space between notes. It’s not the notes you play, it’s the notes you don’t”.

We love space and time in songs which gives the music a chance to breathe. You will feel this across all of our music but most of all in the title song Eclipse, a song about having faith, not in religion but science. There are many nuances in the tracks that the average listener may not pick up on, but they are there, and there are few hidden meanings that hopefully transcend. 

Listen to the EP while reading the text.

This is the first of our recordings as a band and we decided to take a few risks musically. Too many musicians play it safe these days, and we really like to experiment.

The EP was recorded and mixed over two days, we were lucky to be mixing on an analog desk as this created a beautiful warm and authentic sound though the experience was not without its moments. A police swat team showed up on the second day, two doors down from the studio and raided a local crack den, (I know rock and roll) but we missed all the action as our focus was purely on the music.

We do feel very true to our own voices in the music we create which has helped to make it unique. At the same time, plenty of our musical influences make their way into our sound, and different people hear many different things. It is certainly true that there are plenty of references to many genres across our songs, not just rock.

The EP itself is described by fans as reminiscent of bands such as Placebo and The Smashing Pumpkins, but with sprinklings of more modern references like The XX.
