Thoughtful and well crafted, the Invisible EP worms its way into your head slowly and seamlessly with its unique blending of instruments and sparse but deliberate vocals.

As though a self-inserted warning label for how broad an expectation the band places on the listener was intentional, within the first 30 seconds of the disk you are inserted into the full spectrum of their aural trajectory, as the band flip-flops between a sweet melodic violin-driven section that launches abruptly into a full-on assault of traditional guitars and clean, heavy drums.

Thoughtful and well crafted, the Invisible EP worms its way into your head slowly and seamlessly with its unique blending of instruments and sparse but deliberate vocals.

As though a self-inserted warning label for how broad an expectation the band places on the listener was intentional, within the first 30 seconds of the disk you are inserted into the full spectrum of their aural trajectory, as the band flip-flops between a sweet melodic violin-driven section that launches abruptly into a full-on assault of traditional guitars and clean, heavy drums.

The EP continues in this tradition throughout, with luscious sounds interlaced with vocals that are neither standout nor subordinate, but rather play as an instrument within. Aside from some out of left field moments with an odd groove on Track 3 and some inelegant electronic overtones on Track 4, the band surprisingly executes everything without pretension and any oddity is forgivable, if not wholly forgettable.

My personal favorite is Track 6, with a little ear candy for the patient audiophiles past minute six. Intended to be played with their own self-produced digital video clips, you won’t miss the absence of accompanying visuals, although I look forward to catching this band live, not just to fully actualize the music as intended but out of plain old-fashioned curiosity. (7.5/10)
