A ragged and cathartic mix of Middle Eastern psychedelia, progressive rock and transcendental drone.

These compositions almost command listeners into a place where trancelike rhythm and contemplative introspection are impossible to ignore.

Together, brothers Aaron and Levi worked on the layers and differing elements that have made “Higher” the track it is today.
