Comment: my first impression was it is an arty-farty issue while hearing superficial piano chords moving in front of the scale. In fact, those piano chords were not so superficial and many more layers would be get added to the mix. So ultimately it can be admitted it is very far away of being superficial and simplistic. Karolis Burzinskas who is behind the project adds craftily not only emotively accentuated piano chords and orchestrated templates to the mix but also manipulates with synth-based and funky cadences here and there. For instance, at Sunshine Radio it evokes memories about such Soviet synth-led combos as the Latvian Zodiac (it is still a favourite of mine), and the Lituanian Argo. Of course, If you wish you could also draw parallels upon such post-rock luminaries as God Is An Astronaut, and Bark Psychosis but it is indispensable anyway. As well as those thoughtful and picturesque extended piano chords and orchestrations remind of a late Talk Talk at This Girl. However, Karolis Burzinskas` handful of tracks is an ennobling outing where different kind of shifts between the styles and tempos pitch a game. And the cover print is truly heart-breaking. The release is a part of the discography of Portuguese imprint Enoughrecords, and also a part of the discography of Japanese imprint Bump Foot.
