"'Maybe Someday' is a full length ambient/drone album based around the shrines of Japan's northernmost islands. Concepts such as loneliness, fear of missing out, depression, & hopelessness are explored in a slow-churned blend of guitar drones, keyboard chimes , & field recordings.

Audio of isolated shrines, where worshipers pray for their dreams to come true, circulates with endless cavernous drones in the track; "All I Wish Is Gone Away."

"Arctic Dreams" floods the listener with a wash of melancholic guitar chimes, gliding wistfully above a layer of infinite frequencies & modulated voices, echoing & whirling.

Friendly Kankyo Ongaku jingles and sparse synthesizer sweeps indicate a more hopeful outlook on "Dreamless."

The somber opening track; "Burn Away" starts the album with a series of Prayer Bells adjoined in the background by the unmistakable cry of cicadas in the Summer. The bells are echoed by the deep, resounding notes of a modulated Fender VI as the natural sounds dissipate, and the album begins.

The album is sonically inspired by artists & groups such as; Harold Budd, Robin Guthrie, The Cure, & Hiroshi Yoshimura."
