Leading single ‘Autre Vie’, highlights the bands signature style of beautiful, ethereal melodies which emit a sense of tranquility. Fusing nostalgic electronica, atmospheric aesthetics and building anthemic drum beats, the band have succeeded in producing a dynamic song to portray a sense of peace and understanding. 'Autre Vie', meaning “another life” in French, was written in a time of need during Aguilar’s struggle with a temporary illness.  The illness consequently forced him to be house bound. Aguilar reveals, “they say that a man's character is best defined when they are alone, my journey led me to discover a specific musical sound that brings peace and freedom to whatever someone is going through”. The single expresses how love is the most powerful thing to conquer ones personal moral state of being.


Sunlight cast and burn my eyes
stare until I blister blind
it's calling, calling me
it's calling, calling me
ocean drag me through your tides
cleanse me from the inside out
I'm treading treading here
I'm treading treading here

in Circles, we're going in circles

Shadows take away my mouth
cast them from the inside out
your calling, calling me
your calling, calling me
echoes raging through your eyes
heaven soar me through your skies
I'm hiding, hiding here
I'm hiding, hiding here

in circles, we're going in circles

Up in the air at night above the clouds
I see a perfect view and I'm falling away
I want to be there, I want to be there with you
