Cerberus” is an immersive track that encapsulates a captivating post-rock atmosphere, constantly teetering on the brink of evolution.

The unforgettable chorus, enriched by powerful guitar elements, leaves an indelible mark, solidifying “Cerberus” as a standout piece within the genre.

PIXY STIX” is an irresistibly groovy track, surpassing the infectiousness of “Cerberus” with its captivating guitar elements captivating listeners right from the start. The joyful drum elements gracefully propel the song forward, adding to its evolution. The seamless blend of dream-pop and post-rock creates a perfect equilibrium between contemporary and nostalgic vibes, reminiscent of the unique essence found in Santana’s music. The ingenious use of repetition once again shines through, captivating the audience. This enchanting composition invites listeners to sway gently, encouraging an active yet meditative focus.

Cattitude” is an invigorating track that embodies the essence of a driving organ trio style, featuring the remarkable talents of Dutcher Snedeker from Earth Radio.
