[CHILL/ELECTRONICA] Inventions – “Escapers”

Inventions-band-2015

Like ocean waves, that kind of pulsing, thrumming, rushing, dull roar that fills your brain as much as your ears. It drowns out thought like it drowns out all other sound – peace. This track, like the rest of the Inventions album, allows you to either tune in or tune out. It can be creativity […]
