Our first album proper, EIDETIC MEMORY represents our musical evolution and is a step up from our previous efforts. Rather than just a collection of tracks, we tried to create a cohesive listening experience around a sonic concept. We wanted to lose much of the bleakness present in some of our early work, go for a warmer, more welcoming sound and create something of a musical narrative in the process.
The result turned out to be more cinematic than we had expected. We now think of this as a soundtrack for an imaginary movie. The plot of the movie is summarized in the track titles, and we hope that you can see the movie in your mind's eye as the music plays.
A limited edition audio CD can be ordered from us via Bandcamp. The CD comes in a 6-page colour digisleeve with photographs by Mig. It is limited to 100 copies.
The album is available digitally via Bandcamp as well as through iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Juno, eMusic and other digital music sites from 26 January 2018.
