“No proper introduction to hospital bracelet is complete without visiting neutrality acoustic, the outfit’s heatseeking ep.
The release places listeners in a headspace that often veers off in unwieldy directions but ultimately battles for the middle ground. Eric writes with the intensity of a free-association exercise, yet the exacting detail of an obsessive self-editor. Across songs that toe the line between self-loathing and a 12-step program, Eric weaves tales about addiction, recovery, and survival in between discussions about role-playing games, foo fighters live sets, and their trusty pickup truck. Despite its sudden drop on bandcamp in october 2019, ardent followers were quick to label it “the best emo release of the decade.” hyperbole or not, the resonance of Eric’s songs remain deeply heard and widely relatable. Stay tuned.” - James Cassar // Rumblepak
