“Bare trees, gaunt beasts and inconceivable quiet is an ep that explores traditional winter holiday imagery and how it alludes to the heaviness of winter spent in places where there is no snow, no poetic serenity, but rather an inertial gray which hardly encumbers our everyday lives. Yet, somehow in spite of such stark experiential differences that climate creates, the holiday season still brings with it a unifying will and spirit that brings people together when the elements would have otherwise.” – William Ryan Fritch
