REVIEW: Pelican - Ataraxia/Taraxis

Editor Parker Langvardt journeys through Pelican's new EP Ataraxia/Taraxis with some powerful aural imagery. Is that a thing? Here’s an excerpt:

"If Come to Need was a point of convergence in Pelican’s career, the Ataraxia/Taraxis EP might represent a new era in the band’s sound. The concepts of this EP also seem to be a response to Come to Need's themes. The word 'ataraxia' was used by Greek philosophers in reference to a disconnection from unhealthy feelings and thoughts relating to the outside world, aiming to attain a sort of enlightenment where you have deep personal relationships and are not emotionally affected by negative chaos.”
