Dying Themes is an ep based on sampled tape loops, drones, jazzy piano textures, and equipment failures caught on tape during the upcoming full length Pale sessions due out in June 2021.

Dying Themes is a concept ep based off sleep patterns that someone who's suffering from anxiety and insomnia is experiencing right before dying. The songs slowly develop into sad nightmarish constructs as does mental illness to the human spirit. As the album progresses the songs become more stressed and incoherent.

The piano textures embedded in the songs represent a fond memory slowing being consumed by negative thoughts and depression. The tape static represents the loss of sleep and the damage it does to our mental wellbeing.

This is meant to be listened to before sleep and with headphones on.
