The Crux & Remixes (double EP)

captaindamaged Artistic brilliance from beginning to end. If you can listen to the extended version of The Crux and not be swept away by its majesty, then we have nothing in common. TIRS are no ordinary rock band. Years of making atmospheric soundscapes and dark ambience with catchy guitar solos and bleak, soulful lyrics brought us to this point xx
