In the Summer of 2015, Los Angeles music site Buzzbands.la premiered the band’s single, “Golem”. Displaying an immediate change in sound from their previous release, the track featured washed-out vocal melodies, dynamic drums fills, and dreamy transitions with psychedelic undertones.

MTV chose a few songs off the album to be placed in various shows throughout 2015, which allowed band discovery to naturally grow across the nation. MTV’s series, Awkward will also be placing another song in their upcoming season 6, this Spring of 2016.
