A thorough analysis of long-term relationships, military service, political activism and cynicism, and self-awareness through melodic folk, americana, synth-pop, and rock and roll.
"It's not hyperbole to say that Robinson is one of the finer lyricists writing today. These songs will sneak up on you. An intricate turn of phrase here or a standout couplet there will tickle your brain, and then you realize that your heart's been ripped wide open." - Adobe and Teardrops (NYC)
"Certain lines stick with you and demand further thought, quite obviously metaphors or references that needs to be figured out... The EP is full of little things like this that unravel with repeated listens, and is well worth your time." - Wake the Deaf (UK)
