There is something that is deliciously primal about the Pacific Water & Power EP, and it is defined by the desperate and anguished nature of Colin Peterson’s vocals. Terminal A’s dark and haunting sound beautifully characterizes the EP. Listeners can sample this sensibility with “Oe-dipus Kiss,” “Queen Mab” and the live recording of the number “Hey.” They offer engaging material through solid, heavy guitar riffs, and a soul-twisting sensation arises primarily from a predominant use of synthesizers. Ultimately, this creates a very foreboding sound, and, I gotta say, I’m hooked. –Nick Kuzmack
