“You wish You Were Red” may take its cues from influences as disparate as Dick Dale’s 50s surf pop and Angelo Badalamenti’s more lush moments on David Lynch films, but its mise-en-scène is most assuredly the band’s own.

Beginning with the slow growing hum of fuzz tone and drumbeats, Jimmy Lee’s SoCal guitars then drop in and set the song in dramatic motion; creating a song that is cavernous and expansive even as it is imbued with intimacy and warmth, especially with Suzanne Aztoria’s fallen angel vocals reverberating throughout.

The cryptically titled “Engelhardt’s Arizona”, meanwhile, pitches ringing, circling guitar shreds against a moodily spacious backdrop, with the swooning vocals urging the track ever onwards and skywards, building to a miasmic, transcendent climax.
