“Reality or Design? Says it all really doesn’t it? Has this past year been real? Or is it just some hellish nightmare we’re all gonna wake up from soon? 2020 was without a doubt one of the toughest years many of us have ever experienced. Within our families and friends there have been loved ones lost and new lives born, no gigs allowed, plans re-arranged, and then changed again.
In the void and when we were allowed to do so we re-grouped in our studio, which has become our safe haven from the madness. We immersed ourselves in creation, experimenting with our music, writing new songs, searching for the path forward. So we now proudly present to you our new five track EP, our response to a frustrating year for most and question once more, Reality or Design?” - Pysence
