"This is an avant-garde noise release that to be honest I did not automatically expect; I somehow imagined your music would be mellower; yet, after re-listening to it for the second time, I do realize how tightly-knit these sounds are to your persona and spiritual essence.

 

Cherub heals Amy is almost a frantic action movie in one go; it's dense and quite unsettling to hear for the first time. On the second listen, I noticed how intimately it speaks to us, listeners… Brings us closer, perhaps, to the essence of healing; the latter, often being hectic and piercing like a razor and not necessarily wholesome in the classic sense.

 

Katie's Doll House is a fairy tale in a minute; an excellently-served interlude…

Before we move on to the puzzling Make the Clowns go away. As its name suggests, we hear the voices of ghostly clowns hovering over a decaying soundtrack from the sixties. This combination paints quite a harrowing picture in our heads. The ending deconstructs the vision in a masterful way, with the organ setting the mood for the next composition - Magnetic Needles.

 

Magnetic Needles is a musical quest – unable to find a way out from the erroneous darkness. The magnets, with their pitched psychedelic sound, symbolize, in my eyes, the attachments that do their best to hold us on the ground, while we try to fly away…

 

Telepathic Mannequins sums up this superb adventure with a mixture of noise and alchemical cues – creating a fascinating atmosphere, backed-up by metal-esque guitars and growls. So much energy is packed within this track – a summary I might as well use at large.

 

For a rather short EP, this journey holds much reflective power into the soul of its creator; a person lost in his spiritual quest but eventually realizes that this sense of detachment and doom are his best assets on this path. I would dare to say that the EP ends in a rather optimistic last note – I most definitely recommend keeping an eye for this young man's creative output. It has the power to mesmerize and teach a lesson or two about what it means to be a spiritually-oriented individual in a materialistic society."
