Embrace the craziness/dissonance

Let go of your anchors and your wings if you have to
Embrace it and let it go
Don’t fuck up
Let it fuck you up

And if it hurts the music can save you
Louder if you have to

Infinitely so until it doesn’t help and you’re worthless
Driving as fast as you can with the music as loud as you can
It will never be enough

Even late at night
Even for a second it won’t be enough
And you’ll have to
Stab the earth repeatedly until you’re beautiful again
With the blood on your teeth and on your skin

Still stuck behind the wheel
You cannot escape to your fantasy and fantasy and fantasy end fantasy

You’ll never feel alive
Not til the permanent fantasy your dreams cannot provide
And stab the earth til you’re beautiful
With love on your teeth and on your skin
And the beautiful colors it makes of blood out of gaping holes in heads

ok, bring me down softly
Just once touch me softly my cure
Please let me be infantile and weak and not pathetic in that bad way

We believe that music connects us with the eternal, and fills the void with meaning.

Genres vary from electro-tinged psychedelic indie-folk to maximalist-idm.

Dirty Projectors and Sufjan Stevens meet Björk and Aphex Twin, with touches of Nine Inch Nails, Tchaikovsky, and the kitchen sink. Surprises abound.
