Variant EP

by Sunsets and Hearts

About this album:


“Variant Ep is undoubtedly the most personal album I've made to date and consider it a musical chronicle into my life from this past year. The album is a puzzle of spatially placed lyrics that are deliberately bleak and hurtfully honest.” 

Drugs, family, depression, love and friends all play a part in this disconcert of an album. The music and tone of each song are undoubtedly very dark and claustrophobic with structure, arrangement and design purposefully all one-dimensional. To me it is pure artistic bastardization & fulfillment in restraint and focus...that I've yet to achieve on any of my past albums and for that I am sorry. 

Thank you for reading and thank you for your ears. 


Variant EP was recorded in a small house on the East Side of Austin, Tx in August & September of 2012. It was Mixed in Brooklyn, NY in October of 2012 and Mastered in Waupun, WI in January of 2014.

Special Thanks to Tony Rios a great artist & friend.
