Lylli hand drew the artwork (Unbelievable!).

The artwork is inspired by the words of my good buddy Jimmy and his beautifully written track descriptions:

Rush - The precise order of things in nature. Rush’s variety of bleeps, knocks, taps and twitches breath life into a body rhythm, a pace, at which we follow undertone vocals unto a steady kick drum and the notes from a sombre bass. The track’s inner workings are exposed like cogs and gears underneath a watch face. Rush is a descant to verisimilitude, as well as a soundtrack of ecstasy. Homage to the natural world, from the electronic one. It begs to be mistaken for birdsong and tribal drum. Yet, it was borne between the 1’s and O’s, dashes and commands. Keystrokes of a machine masquerading as fine brushstroke of impressionist landscape. Above all else, Rush is special. Airy and light. Commanding and ordered. Ying and Yang. The metal wiring behind human flesh.

Paradise – Our descent into nirvana, and soft soul progression, begins with the sweet honeyed warble of Lylli’s vocal. Her narration is shifting pitch with the rise and fall of the fades and snaps that bring to attention each bar. It feels, as strings drive the track through its dense chorus, much like watching a time lapse video. The fluidity of time moving at great pace over slowly dissolving objects. Melting glaciers. Starry nights. Cityscapes. We’re invited to watch, as the big picture shapes up in front of us. We’re invited to see through the world we know, and see it again, through the surrounding motions, to see the ghost of our modern day lives. Paradise.
