A little about the EP;
Aura Negra – a tale of forbidden fruits made cryptic by lyrics that alternate between Spanish and English in the heady setting of lilting mandolin strings
Eden Project – A dark narrative that voyeuristically guides us through the private anguish of addiction over a deceptively optimistic country rhythm
Valiente – A passionate flamenco lament caught in a torrent of orchestral cat calls and a merciless bass line
Mind You Care – A chant to the fire within, may it burn fierce lest it not burn out and see you in an everlasting bitter state
Profundo – An achingly beautiful Spanish ballad that exposes the fragility of innocence of truth in love unfolding for the first time
Joe – A charging anthem that tells of a womans anger and resistance towards her young lover with an urging sexuality and menace
