PICTURES OF THEN is a collision of contradictions that teeters between past and present without staking claim in either. The band simultaneously waxes nostalgic yet aches for transformation. Their sound is hauntingly familiar; the kind of music your parents would’ve listened to had they been hip instead of hippies; the songs Generation X would have written if only they’d discovered their voices sooner. It's a tribute to how things never were—but should have been.
