Yves Schelpe (Psy'Aviah) Superb release, <3! Their typical sound - very different, original, yet very accessible & catchy. "Slip" is so filled with emotions in vocals as in synths, the chorus left me in awe and tears. The drum programming only adds to this, to fill drama in the song.
The other songs are all gems to be checked out for sure too, Kill The Unknown def plays with electro-rock approaches, and "Bad Dream" has again that mix between trip-hop and electro-breakbeat that I fell in love with when hearing HELIX 1st. Favorite track: Slip.

belralph Track 1 plays, that's my favorite. Track 2 plays, oh that's my favorite. Track 3 plays, well now that's got to be my final favorite. Bad Dream plays, aarrghh dammit it's all so awesome!
Slip is great but I can't escape the nostalgic vibe I get from Bad Dream
Vastly enjoyed the live stream, for the love of Buddha please go setup on Patreon. 15-30 minute video a month is all I humbly ask. Always a pleasure catching up and getting new music. Looking forward to whatever is coming next. Favorite track: Bad Dream.

Run 04:53
The world, she speaks But no one hears You think you got the last word figured out. Run Faster than you can Faster than the wind Faster than you’d make yourself believe That you, care only for yourself Only for yourself Only for yourself A muted peace The things that heal us There’s no injection for your ignorance CH Happy he who cannot see The lives that surround you You can’t pretend it isn’t there CH

Slip 04:56
It’s crawling, this feeling Something coming Something happening The fabric all around us Can you see it? Of course not Your skin feels warm to the touch You used to look alot different then A lot harsher Getting sharper What you gotta show for it, when you suffer now I don’t think I know you anymore I watch you slip, slip, slip from the way you were before I don’t know how to love you anymore I watch you slip, slip, slip from the way you were before Its gnawing, this feeling Somethings shifted Won’t come easily Moods changing between us Can you sense it? Well of course you can Your skin feels warm to the touch You used see things alot different then A lot harsher now Getting sharper What you gotta show for it, when you suffer I don’t think I know you anymore I watch you slip, slip, slip from the way you were before I don’t know how to love you anymore I watch you slip, slip, slip from the way you were before

I’m lost no one can find me now not quite a ghost running through myself Can’t you see them knocking at the door Mistrust the writing on the wall Panic Suspicion Unrestrained ambition Get outta my way and kill the unknown Can’t you see it’s so simple, you see? Get outta my way and kill the unknown Better be still They are all watching you now Never whole Gonna make you see the truth somehow Can’t you see them circling above Mistrust the writing on the wall Panic Suspicion Unrestrained ambition CH Can you hear that sound? Someone is breaking in now But i’m addicted to the web I spun Can’t see my way out, don’t know how Don’t you let them take away your voice Mistrust the writing on the wall Panic Suspicion Unrestrained ambition CH

Deep down at the bottom of a well Not that I ran here, but I know that I fell A sick feeling in me, a sick feeling in you I stare at the stars but the dark won’t shine through Im going down down down anyways Im gonna run up the sides of the sideways Feed the words into you Imagine me whatever way you want to I been havin a bad dream No nothing, it don’t seem to be real I been havin a bad dream No nothing it don’t seem real Deep down at the bottom of a well Thought you were certain, but now I can’t tell A deep tension in me, a deep tension in you Breathing underwater was a thing I outgrew Im going down down down anyways Im gonna run up the sides of the sideways Feed the words into you Imagine me whatever way you want to CH
