The material on the Needle Driver EP was written and sharpened over a two-year period of ceaseless rehearsing and steadfast guerrilla tactics. Damaged skronk, asymmetric time signatures, fractured guitar blasts, and hulking bass are the hallmarks of this trio. Incredibly diverse tones run deep through the record, with jaw-dropping musicianship bursting forth from each member, with unfathomably complex arrangements shining through gleaming, ethereal soundscapes, resulting in a unique, immersive, and impressive listening experience.
