The first digital single off the album "Strobes" video can be viewed below.
Band member Sherman describes the album "as an experience rather than a collection of songs. We made sure the whole album flowed like an evening with ebbs and flows that create a journey towards the ultimate cosmic zone at the end."
The album showcases prime examples of Van Hoen's compulsively hypnotic beats and abstracted pop vocals. Says Sherman about this new partnership; "Working with Mark was magic from the first note. We had written most of the record in just one session improvising."
The album was primarily written in Louis Sherman's studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn and completed in Van Hoen's studio in Woodstock, New York.
Sherman, who hails from Baltimore, Maryland, comes to the band armed with a vast knowledge of the history of electronic music; and, combined with London native Mark Van Hoen’s known musical pedigree and production expertise maps the complete topography of a landscape...
"A confluence of…everything. Airy synths drift over a heavy drum loop that slowly compresses itself into tunnels of sound, and there’s a ghostly, Aphex Twin-esque vocal sample that fuzzes and glitches beyond the point of intelligibility. It feels like a survey of noise and harsh electronics against a welcoming backdrop. But beyond all that, it’s a gorgeous track that effortlessly synthesizes so many disparate sounds into one cohesive piece". - The Fader
