The opening track Ometra is a great demonstration of chilled out ambiance while the beautiful vocals of Jamie Brett provide further life to the piece and make it stand up as an outstanding pop tune. For your childhood races towards you is an evolving piece, starting off slow and soft it gradually builds with samples easing their way in. The vocals work their way into the back of the sound creating a solid backbone to the song without going over the top of the ambient beauty.
Fragment sees the EP take a dramatic twist from the relaxed vibes to a more melancholic vibe with subtle samples lingering behind a chilling piano. What are you doing Lyla? continues this vibe. There is a great airyness about the song. As the song progresses the atmosphere gets thicker and more intense heading towards a confronting droney charge.
