The Transmission Album was released in 2009 and is now being followed by a new ep Transgression inspired by a recent unpleasant encounter with a thief via an online dating site/app and an album of eight songs of grieving titled Eight which will be released on halloween 2018 to mark the 2nd death anniversary of Atif’s father.
