Chymera's beautifully melancholic "The Divided Self" (named after psychiatrist R. D. Laing's The Divided Self: An Existential Study in Sanity and Madness (1960)) is pensive, poignant, restrained, and ruled by minor chords. The bassline of "Canavan Calling" (named after Joseph Payne Brennan's short horror story) is so broad, rich, and textured it's almost overwhelming. It was created on an original Minimoog, an instrument with which Chymera fell in love while attending a Studio Stekker week alongside Mathew Jonson, Sebastian Mullaert, The Mole, and others. Starlit synths soon enter the mix, soaring further upward to create a natural, rolling organic build and payoff.
