The self titled debut of this 4 piece twinkly emo band from san jose. This album brings a upbeat ride starting with a dreamy intro and quickly diving into a driving second track with chorus vocals and good vibes, the rest of the album consists of twist and turns from the poppy twinkles with vocal reminiscent of Algernon Cadwallader we all love and more dynamic crashing sections accompanied by strained vocals/screams and everything in between.

Pantry Ghost's debut ep hits you with a wave of somber atmosphere and driving crescendos that will make your heart palpitate. this 3 song EP combines ambient noise elements with beautiful instrumentation ranging from guitar, trumpet, piano, and more. Vocals are used sparingly but to great effect with layered vocals helping add to rising emotions and completing more somber minimal sections. This EP will make you stop in your tracks and contemplate everything and is a great debut by a artist i can't wait to hear more from.
