Inaugurating the release is the vibrant ‘Point Of No Return’, which blends infectious rimshots and oscillating atmospherics with a soothing notes for a mesmerising aesthetic from start to finish. ‘Lumina’ continues the dusky tones but ups the energy, incorporating a purring bassline whilst echoing chords and laser-like effects come and go.
