Dincrest Love this EP.

The music, as a whole, reminds me of bands like The Killers, Interpol, or The Arcade Fire, but with its own unique flavor.

The mixing is great too. The lushly layered instruments give the sound depth, but every instrument is able to breathe. I can nicely hear guitars, bass, drums, and keys in a way that nothing is overpowering.

Oh, and the singer's range and ability to transition in and out of various vocal styles is worth noting. Favorite track: S.T.A.R..

Wolverine 352 Took the love away from you Union was lit up bright Time of year when day looked like night Muttering a small exchange Holding in teardrops like a drain What if we overslept You wouldn’t have gone or you wouldn’t have left You are my Chicago fire Burn me down just to build me higher You say you have your reasons Your heart is changing seasons You and I, disaster & delight I’ve seen every post you’ve made since then I see the way you smile when you’re with him Heard that you can wear his letters But I’m sorry I couldn’t offer you something better Honey I know I’ll never be your savior I’m a good deed I’m just one of your favors You wrote me off for an hour today And it’s another tomorrow until you stay You are my Chicago fire Burn me down just to build me higher You say you have your reasons Your heart is changing seasons You and I, disaster & delight Blonde hair and social class Your taste is built to last From DC to Paris, France My present is your past You are my Chicago fire Burn me down just to build me higher You say you have your reasons Your heart is changing seasons You and I, disaster & delight

Look at me! Drunk on paranoia I'm sorry I'm a mess but more sorry it annoys ya I need the mess to feed my head I try to live by feeling dead Maybe it's my ego Maybe it's my id I'll use Freudian psychology to explain what I did Shame Freud was wrong, can you sell me on God? I need salvation and I'll take what you've got I said "all of the greats were a little bit wack" You said "you can be great without acting like that" It’s not my day! It's not my fault! Will any of this work even matter at all? I’m looking for the point, the center, you see I'm sorry if I act like the center is me You see what I mean? I'm no good for myself Won't you pity the state of my mental health? And I want to scream “why can't you see? The thing you want is here if you would only reach" And I want to hide off in the night and stagger home at 2AM ‘cause that's where my demons hide

S.T.A.R. 05:34
Starry fleet, we take the streets In these emergencies, we will not see All along, they battered songs Pain coming down, heels off the ground Batons, violence, your move And still too soon I tell them all to leave me here tonight So I lied, I always wanted to be by your side I always wanna be by your side A shift of face, no constant state It's 8 AM no son, no Rays, it's 10 PM putting on a lace And though I'll be, so hardly seen You just breathe, you know you're queen I know, I'm idolizing you But I need something to hold on to I made your job to always be my light I swear tonight, I need to be by your side I can’t bear to leave your side I know them big and tall, cradle and throw you past a wall You know that you are here always Don't give up your fight In cells, I clench my hands so tight And I know you saw an end in sight It's alright you saw an end in sight But tonight, keep on your light I'm by your side I'm by your side I'm by your side I'm by your side

Train Song 04:24
I don't know your name But your face looks so familiar It's the same old thing Whenever I'm alone too long I imagine the life that we'd have If only you and I could be best friends And it changes the way that I see myself I'm just a reflection of everybody else And we'll play our train song, the engine carries us away And we'll play the same song, on repeat for 16 days And we'll play our train song, the engine carries us away And we'll play the same song, on repeat for 16 days straight Give it a couple days I just need this confidence Won't let it get away At least that's what I tell myself You should only see inside my head I promise you I meant the words that I said And we'll stand here on the corner while the cars roll by And I'll imagine all the conversation but I was too shy To say a word that would make some sort of difference And now I'm crying at the station looking for significance And we'll play our train song, the engine carries us away And we'll play the same song, on repeat for 16 days And we'll play our train song, the engine carries us away And we'll play the same song, on repeat for 16 days straight I don't know your name But your face looks so familiar I don't know your name But your face And we'll play our train song, the engine carries us away And we'll play the same song, on repeat for 16 days And we'll play our train song, the engine carries us away And we'll play the same song, on repeat for 16 days straight
