Very impressive debut album from this new band. I often compare them to BTBAM (which means a lot). I think The Contortionist can have a great career, and if their subsequent albums mature and progress beyond their first the MU community will be full of praise for this band.

For anyone curious about the band just listen to the song "Flourish" and you'll be a fan.

I thought they had 2 albums before "Exoplanet" though? Unless I'm thinking about a different band...
