I first discovered them around the time they released the epic Venus album in 2016 and was hooked instantly. The way they can just compile these musical layers together with the focus on the songs conveying a lot of emotion is something I always love in prog bands. It does take several listens of each album to truly grasp the beauty of their songwriting as far as discovering every layer whether it's the synths, the heavier and faster prog sections, the harmonies and multi part vocals especially the shared dynamic with the female and male vocals. They recently released the one song album Romancing The Ether which is another wonderful addition to an already varied discography. They are an extremely underrated Australian band that deserves to be heard by a lot more people.

new to me, @Riff Raff . I like the videos posted, especially Collective Unconsciousness.

I hate to judge any band from just a couple songs, I like to dive into full albums to get an overall feel. Where to start?

I'd probably start with the Venus album.
