I Swear I Saw Garlic Growing Under my Father's Steps

Description :Achieving tension and maintaining it is the purpose of this tuneage. The band blend modern elements with chamber music stylings to generate songs of unease and disquiet. The instruments achieve an ominous foundation full of desperation and edgy portends. Guitars provide smoldering support for eerie harp and dire keyboards. Percussion produces a rhythmic undercurrent, punctuated by bells and rumbling bass.

While melodic, the gist of this music revolves around omnipresent anxiety. This apprehension is superbly evoked by harmonic discord as the instruments strive to agitate through their own contention. Passages flow, yet the aspects are in constant strife with each other, endearing chords dogged from the periphery by instruments in eerie dispute. There's a vocal presence, but the voices are rarely lyrical. Non-verbal vocal strains establish a spooky and often painful embellishment for the haunted music. Other times, spoken word recitations lend elucidation.

These compositions capture a world of stress and channel that tension into tunes of trembling gloom. The use of lilting female vocals is counterbalanced by the wail of tortured guitars, creating an oppressive mien that is inescapable. One cannot call this music despondent, though, for there's always an optimistic presence, albeit one that is ultimately crushed by the reality of life and death. This balance of diametrically opposing emotions dominates everything in the songs.

(Sonic Curiosity - 2007)
