It is after the end of the world, the stage is a spacecraft, the mic is an accelerator, brace yourself for The Comet is Coming.

“The Comet Is Coming embraces stargazing psychedelia on its maiden voyage, outfitting spacey synth arrangements with taut saxophone riffs that spiral off into the inky abyss.” Time Out, New York
