Thank you to everyone who helped contribute to the creation of this EP. I wouldn't have been able to set forth on this adventure without amazing friends and fans.

This is a concept EP based on personal and societal progress/digress in a time of spiked advances in technology. More than ever in human existence, technology has benefitted and disintegrated our humanity.

The music reflects this progress/digress, the tracks growing from an a'capella song with complex unstated chord progressions to a complex multi-track three chord dance anthem. Complexity is lost in complexity and simplicity is lost in simplicity.

I hope that you enjoy. Love made this album, and love is the only thing that matters.
