Serena Excellent release from Houston, Texas standouts Seldom. Such a great balance of tones and moods all the way through the album. Crisp vocals about things that really matter. "Digital Echoes"was by far my favorite song on the album. More laid back than the others, the lyrics really hit me. I can't wait for more music from them! I'm a fan! Favorite track: Digital Echoes.

Bree Morcroft On here you get well crafted melodic hard rock in the mould of Dead Letter Circus, 10 Years and The Butterfly Effect. Production is a key element in this genre and the results on this EP are up there with the best of them. Packs a punch with a real warm and expansive sound. Best given good volume. Each track creates its own strong case for favouritism so it was hard to pick just one, the memorable hook in 'Digital Echoes' got me though. Can picture these going down a treat in a live setting. Favorite track: Digital Echoes.

Track Name: Black Mirror
If you only stare at reflections
of all your past and broken dreams
Will you know just to what to feel?
Blur the lines, wipe the edge away
of all the things that surround your fantasies
until nothing else is real

Is this everything you always wanted?

{Chorus}
Enchanted by a world that doesn't exist
you won't let it go, won't look away
Everything else just fades away
You're reaching for something that's just an illusion
you won't let it go, won't look away
everything else just fades away

I realize that it's easier
to run and hide than to feel pain
just disconnect from everything
Don't tell me that you still cannot see
You're in so deep you're drowning
If you only live in the in-between
how can you know what is real?

Will you still be here?
Will you still want this
when all of your dreams turn into these nightmares?
how can you let go, you won't look away?
trapped inside you'll fade away
Track Name: The Grudge
Don't tell me how you're so misunderstood
when you're the one who never listens
Don't tell me how you're so broken-hearted
cause I know that your heart is missing

Where will you place all of the blame
when there's no one left to name?
Will you keep making excuses?

{Chorus}
It's just another sin you won't forgive,
another game you'll never win
Just how long before it all becomes
another grudge that never ends?

So don't tell me that it's all in the past
You're not the kind to forgive or forget
Cause even when you've started to drown
You're reaching up just to pull me down
Track Name: Digital Echoes
Lost in a binary sea
with millions who are just like me
We're all just looking for somewhere to fit in
to find somewhere we belong
I bear my soul but you don't see
so what do you want me to be?
Will this be all you remember of me
When I am gone?

{Chorus}
I don't want to be a digital echo
I am so much more than just ones and zeroes
I will not be here waiting for nothing
I won't be another ghost in this machine
I'll sever these cords that are binding me

I scream into the void
But it's all lost in this noise
How am I connected to everything when
I feel so alone

Are you listening?
Track Name: Masquerade
Who you are isn't good enough anymore
Just keep it buried deep inside
Change yourself into someone else
That you cannot recognize

Surrender your identity
until you finally belong

{Chorus}
It's too late, you're blinded by the lies
That made this world you can't escape
It's too late, when will you come to realize
That you are trapped inside this masquerade

Now you still feel lost and alone
but it's different than before
When everyone is all the same
and you are nothing but a name
WIll you remember who you were?

And if you keep giving in
Will you finally fade away?

Is it worth it to fit right in
Behind a mask, sheltered within
Break your mirrors, open your eyes
There's nowhere left to run and hide
Track Name: Marionette
You're pulling me, guiding me
Like I'm your marionette
Rearranged the way you want
Until I'm just like the rest
I'm struggling just to breathe
With your strings wrapped around my neck

{Chorus}
Take back your promises,
I won't be held captive by your lies
Take back your fantasies
Now that I've opened my eyes
I'm twisting, contorting
against the pull you have on my life
I'm taking back everything
That once was mine

All I am is nothing more than
another pawn in your game
You tighten your grip
when I resist
I won't dance to the song you played

But you can only keep pulling so tightly until you start to lose control
So you can shame me and disgrace me but you won't own my soul

You preyed on my weaknesses
My insecurities
I gave up everything
for nothing at all
I'm so sick of all your lies
And all your manipulations
I'll take back what is mine
and leave you behind
