Selina Maisch - piano
Jake Gutzwiller - guitar
Timo Beeler - bass
David Preissel - drums

Their classical credentials are present in the opening Game Of Tones where strings are sparingly but tastefully used, complementing Selina's moody piano themes. Strings also appear briefly during the expansive Sunnar and the infectious Better Luck Next Time but otherwise the 10 tracks follow, for the most part, a distinct instrumental pattern.
Each begins with gentle, repeated piano and guitar motifs in a deceptively minimalist fashion that often disguises the complexity of the playing and the slight but haunting melodies. It's the calm before the storm however and as drums and bass become more prominent, the music builds to a peak before the final release.
