"Cursive Eve", "Ultravioletfly", and "Salt Of Stones" are available as full-length streams from:


The latest full-length album sees the band exploring new sounds and traversing genres while maintaining an emphasis on addictively catchy hooks. Brittany Bindrim's voice soars on the epic opening track, "Cursive Eve", and she never looks back. The quartet also shows off its polished new sound with sexy dance-rock ("Ultravioletfly", "Machine Vision") and club-friendly synthpop ("Melt", "Toy Soldier"). Meanwhile they are just as comfortable utilizing organic rock elements on the beautifully haunting "Translate" and the powerful "Salt Of Stones". Bindrim's lyrics have never been better as she explores topics of a more political, social, and sexual nature while not abandoning her trademark insightful introspection. Once again, electronic music mastermind Wade Alin (Christ Analogue, Atomica) is on board to add his signature slick production elements to the 12-track set.
