'Origin' was created to be otherworldly yet organic in theme, to conjure up images of distant places alongside themes of exploration and habitation of new worlds. The results straddle multiple genres with a sound that refuses to be easily defined in general terms yet retains a distinct epic and melodic slant.
At times it bristles with clarity, at others fizzes with warmth. Shiny, strident percussion accompanies atmospheric catchy hooks whilst tunes such as 'Anomie', 'Scanners' and 'Paper Scissors' mutate and twist delivering unexpected turns of mood as they progress.
Overall, it's an album of multi-faceted and varied hues - melodic, epic, cerebral (yet never overly obscure or complex) with a thoroughly unique and original mixture of musical styles.
