Having been inspired by everything from experimental electronic music to Danish '80s and '90s pop, to modern hip-hop and R&B to techno and westcoast slow jams, Choir of Young Believers' Jannis Noya Makgrigiannis had made a new, imaginary band in his head called Grasque to reflect those influences. He quickly recorded both Grasque and Face Melting with Aske Zidore, who had also produced Rhine Gold, and when Choir of Young Believers reconvened to tour with Depeche Mode, he wrote a few guitar-based songs to play live. Gradually, he realized all of his new ideas and music could melt together with Choir of Young Believers.

The result is an album that is confident and expansive, incorporating an encyclopedia of styles while still maintaining the essential elements of Choir of Young Believers' DNA. It's pop music, put through a kaleidoscopic filter.
