about

“Both singles “Innermost” & “Descent feat Jekka” voted into “Top 89 Local Songs of 2015” by The Current listeners.” -MPR

"Tracks such as 'Ventilate', 'Revol' (feat. Gus Watkins), 'Collapsed' & 'Burn' give the album a fiercely intelligent & almost confrontational backbone with heavy distortion, dark atmospheres & creepy samples peppering the tracks. On the other hand, tracks like 'Open', 'Descent' (feat. Jekka), 'Disintegrate' & 'Reconstruction' frame a core edm sound with darker textures & overtones for great effect. KPT will certainly be one to keep an eye out for as an exciting rising name in both the dark electronica & edm genres with cerebral releases such as this." -Intravenous Magazine on KPT ALIVE BY MACHINES.

“He is about to explode if this first single says anything. “Descent” is a pulsing dark wave of electronica with submissive vocals by the Russian vocalist Jekka floating above the bass. KPT is possibly the next big Minnesota name to let the rest of the country know what we got.” -The Current on "Descent F. Jekka"

Track Name: Revol feat. Gus Watkins
Intro:
Sweep it away (X5)

Verse 1:
The letter & the spirit
Cloaked like a dagger
One last seduction
& let the streets sweep it away
& cast them into oncoming traffic

Verse 2:
You see, I led my vows to a bridge (you see, I led my vows to a bridge)
& cast them into oncoming traffic
Still breathing the fumes, still tasting your breath (tasting your breath)
& I didn’t wait for the crash (I didn’t wait for the crash)
I didn’t wait for the crash...
…or listen for the splatter
I had already built...
…my next life

Outro:
& let the streets sweep it away (X2) (sweep it away)
Track Name: Descent feat. Jekka
Intro/Chorus:
I felt the distance (X4)
Foreign touches, broken words, something meant, but washed away

Verse 1:
Felt like empty streets, it felt like empty streets
I felt the distance (X2)
In the dawn we walk (X2)
I felt the distance (X2)
Only ghosts were left, & only ghosts were left

Chorus:
Foreign touches (I felt the distance), broken words, something meant (I felt the distance), but washed away...
…swallowed up in darkness, it was swallowed up in darkness (X2)
I felt the distance

Breakdown/Verse 2:
Silence came & all fell still
Felt like empty streets, only ghosts were left
Only ghosts were left, & only ghosts were left

Chorus:
Foreign touches (I felt the distance), broken words, something meant (I felt the distance), but washed away...
…swallowed up in darkness, it was swallowed up in darkness

Outro:
I was thundered down but the door got closed
I was thundered down & the door got closed
