The release sits somewhere between an EP and a mini-album and marks the start of a new chapter in Drab Majesty's legacy. These sessions were then refined or recreated, and later elevated further with key collaborations by Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), Justin Meldal-Johnson (Beck, M83, Air), and Ben Greenberg (Uniform, Circular Ruin Studio).

Moving as one, the trio sculpt a driving, motorik rhythm from weightless textures, cloud formations coalescing into rolling thunderheads. MacKay and McCombs' spiralling guitar figures duck and weave around Rumback's propulsive rhythms, with a distinctive sense of forward motion that pushes towards transcendence.
