A Vancouver-based collective of artists, designers, filmmakers and musicians, the project was initiated as an outlet for members to process mental health issues and struggles with addiction. Indeed, many of them met at an addiction recovery programme.
Minimalist post-punk coalesces with sprawling art-rock, new wave-esque synths with doomy, hip-hop influenced beats, bombastic brass and lush string flourishes. What could so easily have been a complete and utter mess is weirdly cohesive in its eclecticism.
