1. Mankind Hates the Sun She became flustered and unsung, I encouraged her The cities veins, through floors, came undone Her eyes aflame, building fumbling around her frame You could hear the rumblings, though you couldn't take the plunge When you realize what you have become Mankind hates the sun Crumble landscapes all at once" 2. Harmony You don't have to change a thing darling Light around don't you hear the voice calling Travel the world like you once were used to Travel the world like you once were used to The humble hands of stone giants clawing The afterglow of a warm life embodied Shake the chains that we once were used to For old times sake shed the weight that keeps you You didn't have to change a thing darling Look around can't you see the glow has softened You came around just like you once were used to Never set aside the moments that may cheat you I took bad advice just to keep the heads talking Lived for love with no fear of the uncommon I was alive just like we once were used to Now I have put aside the stories in my tissue" 3. Choose Choose the right path, Choose the right path Seasons change in no time, Chase them down the rabbit hole, Those little rascals She is leaving home brings no things She is happy in the wilderness with a little laughter Laughter, laughter Faster. faster She is breathing in her goals She is breathing in her goals Laughter, laughter No more chatter, chatter She is breathing in her goals She is breathing in her goals" 4. The Language of Commitment Hear the words, or get out Adhere to sayings, cultures embracing those in arms Feel the grain, stretched across this land of God So they say, he was pinned up for all love Feel the grain, stretched across this land of God"


'Chromesthesia' was recorded and mixed in 7 days in a warehouse D.I.Y. studio for less than $900 during January 2014 in San Francisco California. It resembles the instantaneous and intangible neurological phenomena it is titled after. Chris Kerrigan, collaborator on our first full length release 'Into Trenches' joined us from Massachusetts. Kellie Flint, accomplished visual artist living in San Francisco generously cultivated the artwork. Numerous musicians from the Bay Area helped us achieve our vision, their sounds sewn prominently throughout the suite.

Thank you for your ears and wish you grace as these moments melt carefully by.

Downloads are free and contain many pieces of astounding art .
