Spencer Colucy Love how the synth disintegrates on this song. Groovy Thom Yorke-esque electronica tunes. Favorite track: Twisted.

Simon Raymond, Amazing Radio:
"and I have to say that's a very exciting sound David is making"

Ted Rogen, The Equal-Ground:
"The music he makes on its recent release Institutions is warm down beat mostly electronic music that is not unlike Thom Yorke’s solo project or Four Tet. He strategically mixes glitches, bleeps, pads, string and his voice into very atmospheric music that spews out warmth."

Suzie Kidger,
"While this EP won’t have you dancing around your bedroom or be home to your new favourite party anthem, ‘Institutions‘ is a bit like looking through a kaleidoscope, you’ll just never know what you’re going to see next. With this EP comes curiosity and and an element of warm, welcoming tones. It’ll fit nicely into your playlist and help you daydream into the ever so slightly delirious." Musikzimmer:
"Present Paradox gibt es erst seit diesem Jahr. Die erklärten Vorbilder Radiohead und vorallem den Sänger Thom Yorke, die hört man allerdings schon deutlich heraus. Genau das richtige also für graue Tage im Herbst"

Track Name: Changed
Tell me whats the point anyway, something wrong in the air
who changed the light of the scene?
who changed the light of the scene?
there were serveral things whose surface pleased me
but you changed the light of the scene
but you changed the light of the scene
some images are twisted, fractured and blured
did you changed the light of the scene?
did you changed the light of the scene?
tell me what to do with all those bits and pieces
did you changed the light of the scene?
did you changed the light of the scene?
there were serveral ways but I haven't find the right yet
who changed the light of the scene?
who changed the light of the scene?
So I try the best I can
Try the best I can
in a different light scene
in a different light scene
Track Name: Topic
This string is too long
I want to leave, do what you want
change the topic, erase the sheet
your distraction is something I don't need
you and your conclusions they go to my head
I shold take the plungee
and run away
from your chairs
you might ask for an purpose
well I got none
no got none
I gont none
Track Name: Twisted
This is twisted, nervous twisted
Track Name: Institutions
Wasted time and lost thoughts
long corridors and closed doors
where is the gap?
I stumble up the steps
the car lost it's wheels
where is my time?
And it feels like an fulstop
still on the wrong side of the floor
I remember your Invatiotion
Your friendly smile
but enough is enough
I filled all contracts and
solved all your tasks
collected my points
You send us home with
nothing more then
empty sheets
Track Name: False Friend
Take the pocketlight
where is your blind spot
it's less obvious
hidden in the shadows
Take the pocketlight
this point is not on your map
it's hidden in the shadows

this is a False Friend
Track Name: Restless
I am restless, I am antsy, the same circuit, electrified
Mr. Restless, you take, three directions, at the same time
You try to catch it
I am restless, I am antsy, all controllers, denied their work
they have cut, the wire, know you it, know it
You try to catch it
