While the six piece’s sound couldn’t be further away from anything they’ve done before, their cohesive approach remains apparent; evident through the effortless guild that bridges each of the songs on the EP.

Mirror Brain, a new interactive installation by Elisabeth Weissensteiner explores the human inquiry into one’s own mind. A moving image sequence is projected from above as slowly superimposing pictures, text fragments and sounds are interpreted by the viewer. In a black space within the gallery, the audience clutches a vessel as they desperately try to catch a fleeting projection, trying to decipher meaning in complete derangement. As the artist explains “What each viewer sees strongly depends on their movements holding the vessel. By looking into the object held in their hands it raises the question of, can we understand how we think?”
