"The Night Hag" channels early Pink Floyd, conjuring up a hypnotic soundscape that transports listeners back to their childhood nightmares. Venturing into acoustic folk-pop terrain, "Trolls" features Sun Lite reflecting on the plague of internet trolls through a touching multi-vocal arrangement.
"Dream & Pony Show" salutes King Crimson and the magical Mellotron, guiding us on an otherworldly odyssey towards a utopian world reminiscent of the flower power age. Bursting forth with an invigorating reggae-rock rhythm blended with tribal percussion is "Not The Bats, Not The Chinese," drawing inspiration from the gripping "War of the Worlds" radio drama.
