Under other monikers, Trey Millward has been a head in the Oklahoma City scene for years. Hypervigilance is for him a new beginning, and one that is adamantly driven by a fierce love. Musically this 5 track EP is a comprehensive picture, ranging from soft, heartbeat kickdrum, ambient techno to dark synth-scapes to a bright but slow dirge topped with beautiful vocals by fellow OKC artist Maddie Razook. Not one track is representative of the entire release, and all of them together document the lifting of oneself out of fearful self-loathing, an embrace of one’s vulnerability, and a renewed engagement with the absurd fragility of life.
