Released for Netlabel Day 2015, this EP bursts into life with a swoosh of superhero strength, shatters into fragments within a pumping synth groove, goes offline in disgust at social media, drifts past the ghosts of inner space, then runs naked into the forest only to find its tree hiding place isolated by bickering workmen.


No Boundaries - Surmount every obstacle - with one bound, she was free! Out, out into a strange wide-open vista.

Moving Boundaries - Splintering within twisting mirrors, she folds back on herself.

Me! I Connect To You - Logging into Facebook sets my teeth on edge. I am reminded of Gary Numan.

Afterparty Trick - Delayed gratification for those listening at normal level; for those listening carefully over headphones, some nice textures before the main event. Alternatively, to quote the Cure - "play this music loud". It could be said that we missed a trick in the naming, as you could also use this as a concept piece for the NASA New Horizons mission. Imagine the eerie almost-silences are the solar winds, early swooshes are the planets being passed-by, and the main sonic assault is the mad scurry of data collection around Pluto and her satellites, followed by a long burst of data transmission back home.

Debazzled - My heart is fit to burst. There's nowhere left to hide.

Track Name: Me! I Connect To You
When life seems bolted-on
I need a favour done
Or just want to waffle on
Then I connect to you

When I've new things to sell
Just like you do as well
It's all just a show-and-tell
When I connect to you

Forced chat in public space is hijacked again
Just turn away and count to ten

We click, scroll, 'like' it all
Don't visit, write or call
I'm not really sure at all
That I connect to you
