Description/Reviews
A concept album comprising of six thematically linked pieces exploring our relationship with memory and loss. The liminal space between a fading ‘what was’ and an anticipated ‘what is to come’.
The album recalls the hazy technicolour of long remembered summers and the sepia of a love forgotten. A place where we blur the boundaries of returning and renewal. The lyrics chart the course through recollection to premonition. These words are both deeply personal and universal, hope for what is next and a lament for what we have lost.
The influences on the new album continue in a similar vein to the band's self-titled 2014 opus - further developing their eclectic mix of folk, rock, metal and Celtic styles. The album’s trajectory shifts between crunching guitars, subtle acoustic instruments, strings, soaring Hammond and emotive grand piano all connected by lyrical storytelling and timeless vocals and harmonies.

Description/Reviews
Similar to their debut album, Colours out of space is fully instrumental, but unlike their previous release this album is heavily influenced by some of the short stories written by The Godfather of horror fiction: Howard Phillips Lovecraft.
With vintage instruments like the Orchestron, maestrovox, fender rhodes and mellotrons suddenly crashing into twisted samples and modern synthesizers, Colours out of space will take you on a cosmic journey with its raw explosiveness and dark ambience, blending progressive rock with atmospheric soundscapes that mixes majestic sections with experimental chaos, Pixie Ninja is putting the listener to the test with this lovecraftian-inspired concept album.
