The issues we face today lay heavy on the mind, rightfully so, and art often seems like the only way to relieve ourselves of that weight. Pragmatic encapsulates a lot of those concerns, lyrically and in terms of the fullness and volume of the collection. A concept hard at work.

They are always short, the lyrics, always seeming like mere snippets of deeper thoughts or poems. It works within these high energy, ever-shifting soundscapes. You’d know a Gonetcha record after spending even just a little time with these songs.
