More information: This studio album, recorded with John Mitchell at Outhouse Studios, taps into contemporary global concerns and demonstrates the band’s genre-defying approach with menacing, angular riffs, pop rock hooks and electronic soundscapes that complement their emotive vocals.
In this eclectic new album, the band venture into familiar ‘Cairo rocks’ territory on some dynamic, moving epics. There are also some departures for the band venturing into more melodic rock areas with ‘The Love’ and ‘Glow’, and the upbeat ‘Jumping On The Moon’.
The album also features a short keys-based orchestral instrumental, ‘Save The Earth’, which doffs a cap to the likes of the sadly, departed Vangelis, and acts as a prologue into the title track.
