3 stars Here we have to announce an interesting institute, established not long ago, founded by four young chaps situated in London, and surely provided with preference (modern love) for prog music which came up earlier, some decades before exactly. Probably intended to be merged in a full-flegded concept album in the near future, this is the first EP from a trilogy, a promising one, you bet! Consisting of five well-crafted parts you can also take this as an epic if you will. Variety, shifting time signatures, charming vocals and sense for melody, still far away from a copy-cat or so. Hence I immediately felt comfortable.

Keyboards are marginally placed, for example when implementing symphonic strings, vocals and twin guitars mostly set the agenda. The couple Welcome and You Want This Life is a perfect introduction in order to enter the prog stage. In between with Mr. Hyde they drift into popular fields a bit, only a side note though. I'm very pleased with the compositional skills, hopefully this passion will stay. While completely self-funded it may take some time to complete this project. You can listen and support them by visiting their bandcamp site in the meanwhile - 3.5 stars so far while awaiting the follow-up with curiosity.
