It’s such a shame, how we suffer We are estranged from each other Convinced and enraged, oh how we suffer From time and constraint we’ll recover

Charged 05:05
Oooh, they’re waiting for the sky to fall Mmm, they’re praying for the sky to fall And with this feeling they hear a call Ooooh, they’re ready to destroy it all (Repeat) And with this feeling, they hear a call But then again, don’t we all Traveled so far, just to get to this place Only to find, our fields are plowed under again (Repeat)

The leaves still blow gently in the breeze on their branches Waves still greet the earth at its edges The sun still warms us and lights us and feeds us But despite all this beauty, despite all this beauty… All around us….

The last beat of the last elk heart.

Where do we go, is anybody out there We’re in the unknown, will anybody find us Wherever we go, we drag it all behind us Wherever we go, it’s already there inside us Where do we go, is anybody out there We’re in the unknown, will anybody find us Wherever we go, it’s already there inside us It’s already there inside us

about

"spellbinding almost immediately, an urgent and intense pyre of unrelenting instrumentation... hypnotically creating a nearly out of body listening experience. Utter dynamite." Fuzzy Logic, logicfuzzy.com

"Charged" is a heavy atmospheric crush. Songs swell, building to crescendos with a steady hand setting the pace and as often as they are dark and cool, they are warm and soothing...this album is so confident and assured of its purpose." The Indy Review, theindyreview.com

"a grand return that comes packed with psychedelic infused tracks, mind-bending art rock and soundscapes... uniquely very much its own thing... the sort of mind-altering numbers you can see soundtracking a dystopian science fiction film." We All Want Someone To Shout For weallwantsomeone.org

"a cultivated and imposing piece which impresses through its technical impeccability and originality." Destroy//Exist destroyexist.com

"their much anticipated sophomore record... features seven tracks of powerful, cinematic post-punk, centered around tribal drum patterns, polyrhythmic synthesizers, and shoegaze and psychedelic textures." Post-Punk.com

"Electronics jab at the listeners ears, sputter in and out of focus, all the while the drum work rides the vibe, minimal and primal, beating with your heart. It’s a mindfuck of the most brilliant sort." austintownhall.com
