Lost a little bit in the sour feelings from yesterday was the fact that the former HAMIDASYSTEM minus one HAMIDASYSTEM plus one new member, aka CROSSNOESIS, had dropped their EP. This in the midst of the new HAMIDASYSTEM, which does not involve any of the old HAMIDASYSTEM, which is now CROSSNOESIS, who are in the middle of a single-per-month run that we just enjoyed the other day, so there is understandably even some confusion for folks! All well and good. At any rate, the group that is now CROSSNOESIS and in no way HAMIDASYSTEM stop saying that, to promote the release of the EP, released an MV to really flex those muscles and show us their chops as a standalone, next-step kind of group:

Well heck, that’s simultaneously exactly what I should have expected and not really what I expected at all. It sounds just like, well, them! And of course it does — the creative team didn’t stop working together when CROSSNOESIS was birthed, and our prior exposure to their work didn’t exactly break with tradition. We’ve even heard this before! Am I complaining, though? Absolutely not. Ever since their turn toward the exquisite a couple of years ago, the entire HAMIDA experience has been one of ethereal goodness that always makes me feel good to listen to. I can’t wait to dig into the whole record!
