A concept EP about Mental Health

"The Common Signs will never be considered an easy listening classic, but it’s this kind of diverse musical palate that makes it so much more than just another noise record."

Track Name: Often The Mouth Can't Say What The Mind Is Trying to Express
"The autism spectrum is vast and there are different levels that people fall on. The common signs of autism are trouble with social interaction and communication. Often the mouth can't say what the mind is trying to express."

Track Name: Draining Yourself Of All Life
What Is Draining You?
Track Name: Removing The Stigma
"It is an odd paradox that a society, which can now speak openly and unabashedly about topics that were once unspeakable, still remains largely silent when it comes to mental illness."-Glenn Close
Track Name: Upstairs Power Cut
"The downstairs brain includes lower regions of the brain that are responsible for basic functions (like breathing and blinking) as well as impulses and emotions (like anger and fear).

The upstairs brain is responsible for more intricate mental processes like planning, decision-making, self-awareness, empathy and morality.

When a child’s upstairs brain is functioning well, she’s more likely to be able to slow herself down, think before she acts, regulate emotions, self-soothe and consider others’ feelings and perspectives — all important areas of healthy human functioning."
