about

Lyrically downbeat with an air of fragility each track not only serves to push musically boundaries but also political dogma and ethos to blend childhood hazes with industrial and fiscal turmoil. A flavour of the album can be summed up in the track Darma. One man’s internal nihilistic mantra as he realises he’s run out of options. While album track Minimum Change Maximum Time was inspired when the band came across a decades old archived interview with Brian Eno, talking about his approach to making music at the time, the anti-pop approach.

Lost Highway presents an aural soundtrack via spacerock, a dance beat cabal, softened by an aura of psychedelic overtones. The result is fortified, mutually electroloud and jizzed up by the motorik artistry of Krautrock, influenced and beguiled by the likes of Loop, Spacemen 3, Neu!, Spiritualized, Holy Fuck, 65 days of Static , Orbital and much much more musically and beyond.
