The title track, “Pigmented Reality,” starts off with a mysterious vibe before exploding into a dancefloor-ready groove. Vocals are used sparingly throughout the album, but when they appear, they add another layer of intrigue

Each song feels like a world of its own. “Punk Kids” stands out with its electrifying spoken word vocals and infectious beat.
