Monuments, an EP series

Similarly to their debut, Monuments is also built around a concept.

“You’re being uploaded, transformed and processed: about the tendency of vaporizing uniformization of the individual, displayed by an EP series of the path that ultimately leads to chosen compulsion to conform.”

Next to the title track which introduces the main concept the listener finds two, softer melodies: Drop The Curtain is a song for people, who have hard time fighting dementia, and also for those, who are dedicating their lives taking care after their loved ones for the very last moments.
Passing Faith in Others is a love song, but not in its traditional sense. Most people are eager to build an enviable reputation. Do anything beyond their capacities to own classy gadgets and surrond themselves with flawless people. In the other way around they also tend to trash everything that isn’t perfect for them anymore, or break sometimes, and don’t even bother to fix or work on them. And that’s particularly true when it comes to relationships. Or even worse: they choose to live in a comfortable lie…
