The songs are rooted in improvisation, taking in elements of funk and ethnic rhythms. Their danceable heavy debut EP was self-produced with analogue recording, and digital mixing and mastering.

Track Name: Drive
Moves lead you by the neck like a dog
Smooth, looks like you might get through this song

You shouldn't wait till the end
No two ways I just can't say why
You wanna see her again
No two ways
Get here late she'll be gone

No single utterance
Escapes your notice
Hanging on to words
They would carry you away
Time and other things
Cast away to where
You let down your guard
Would she repair

Insides burning
Outside blurring
Road in perfect focus
Get here late she'll be gone
Get here late she'll be gone
Track Name: Sunstroke
Fall to ground
Sand and sky
It don't look much but the crazies are out tonight
Spectral shapes
Taking flight
It never gets old, you still cower in the dark

Twenty-two days
Taking their toll
Never the same
Heart and soul
The real signs leave no mark
Toil and time wresting the soul

Let it out
No one
No one for miles so you just might as well lean back open your lungs and release all the reasons
What has led you to mix with the snakes and the rats

Just one more mile

It seems too late
To turn back around
The weight's too great
To set down now
If time is measured in grains of sand
I've seen enough to make me wanna kill a man
Track Name: The Free and the Restless
See there in the corner
The guy in the suit
The free and the restless
Are not one but two

I'll wait for you
Will you wait for me

Wait, don't you turn around now
When you're still, it comes to you
Stay, there's nothing like a moment
Held in your hand, and say I like the way you

It's time to step through
So hang around and don't cling to
Here's time for just you
Facilitate receding ghouls
Releasing to the peace in you
Waiting still and stepping through
And stepping through
