THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Majeure returns with a blistering EP of seemingly limitless synth textures and seemingly endless drum fills.
Majeure — the solo moniker of Zombi and Contact cofounder A.E. Paterra — has built a reputation as one of North America’s most interesting purveyors of synth-based rock music. Often overlooked is the fact that Paterra is also one of the world’s premiere prog-rock drummers, a fact that is emphatically obvious on Apex. Over the course of three songs stretching nearly a half hour in length, Apex is an audacious, exhilarating exercise in maximum minimalism — a disorienting journey between dystopian reality and vintage video game illusion. RIYL: Stranger Things, Rush, Zombi, John Carpenter, Tangerine Dream.”
