Optical Delusion features songs like “Ringa Ringa,” “Day One,” “Are You Alive?,” “You Are The Frequency” and “Dirty Rat” amongst many others. Altogether, the plethora of sonic imagery that pours from this album will have listeners coming back time and time again. Optical Delusion is out now via London Records.
