NITE-006 – Monsters – Cowards Way Out EP

I was really excited when Monsters said he wanted to put another EP out with Nite Owl. If you’ve heard his earlier release, you know why. But he told me something interesting about this one, and it’s pretty unique for a chip release (or anything with chip-style elements) : “It’s a concept EP revolving primarily around suicide, so naturally, there’s very little on it that is either happy or uplifting. It’s got some ambient stuff, some kinda dubstep stuff, some kinda break-y stuff, and some other stuff.”

1. The Art Of Drowning
2. Sky Lights
3. Every Regret In The World
4. The Darker Side
5. Cowards Way Out
6. Step Down
