We reached out and gained access to new parts of the THANKS consciousness.”
I don’t usually feel, all the feels from heavily instrumental tracks, but I couldn’t help be mesmerised in a happy haze by the mind-altering, kaleidoscopic beats of “Mind Expansion“. The distinct sound is a collision between different approaches to making music. The addictive, sexy disco style, encourages listeners to dance like nobody’s watching, or better still like an, ex is watching.
