Its most recent EP, “All in Our Minds,” includes five tracks: “My Mind's Eye,” “Map of Your Mind,” “I Got a Mind to Tell You,” “Reminds Me of You,” and “Out of Sight, Out of Mind”. The EP was produced by Jeff Peretz, an instructor at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and recorded at Head Gear, located in Williamsburg Brooklyn, and the James L.
