2nd single "Sparks" the a lot of this, especially the vocal harmonies in the last minute or so.

So this is a new EP coming out from San Francisco progressive/chamber band The Family Crest, who I enjoy immensely at times.

I think I posted some stuff previously about their next record, being a big double album, or 2 albums coming, etc..per speaking with some of the members after a show a few years ago at The Cedar.

Well, I imagine some of that is still in the plans, but this is just an EP coming, so I imagine it's just a sample of the oncoming storm that will be in the near future.

New track "Mirror Love" linked above, I will hear and watch later. I would embed the video but, it's unlisted, per likely the wishes of NPR, etc. I suppose in due time, maybe the next bump with more details on this EP, artwork, track list, etc an embed may be in order. 

edit: just from that story above

"The War" sounds like The Parallax series from  Between the Buried and Me a bit (but I would put money on I enjoy it more). 

Also Mirror Love and a comparison to the late 70's The Bee Gees  in that story.

"Mirror Love" comes from The Family Crest's new EP Prelude To War, coming out April 28. It is the first installment to a larger project by The Family Crest called "The War." There will also be a tour coinciding with the release — this band is a must-see live!
