There's No Room For Fantasy with Yourself In Peace - An Interview

Justin Corrál, vocais e guitarras e Westley Miles Ulit, sintetizadores e bateria formam o duo Yourself In Peace. Uma verdadeira metralhadora giratória onde a munição é recheada de minimalismos eletrônicos e espasmos experimentais conduzidos pelos synths gélidos de Westley.

"There´s No Room For Fantasy" é o mais recente trabalho dos caras, e soa simultaneamente como um artefato moderno e retro, algo como um Suicide domesticado.

E para aqueles que infernizam dizendo que nada de novo é feito, eu sugiro a audição do Yourself In Peace, vai ser um refresco pra mente.

Recording relies heavily on accessing the unconscious mind and allowing one's brain to take a back seat to logic and reason.
