When Push Comes To Shove

LP, CD + Digital. Out NOW on Possession Records.

“Chin Up contains 11 tracks of what might be loosely described as “ambient synth pop” with a running time of almost an hour. It is in a way a mirror release to When Push Comes To Shove as both records share the same approach to composition, sound design and production techniques but with different results.”
