Highlight Review: “Drawn in part from ’80s new wave and post-punk, the group’s sound is a genre-blurring blend of rock, as evidenced by their debut single, “Land of Gathering.” The bold number is a conflagration of pounding drums and live-wire energy all but missing from radio today, armed with anthemic harmonies and a distinctly otherworldly sensibility.” – read more at V Magazine
