released May 14, 2013

This all began with me trying to busy myself with some kind of musical project due to me being stuck at home with no job and having no commitments to any other bands. So I decided to do the whole 'singer-songwriter acoustic' thing but with me putting my own twist to it, and in doing so led to me releasing my very first EP 'Youth Algorithms' in 2013. You might notice that with these three songs I chose to sing in a more huskier/baritone style. At the time I was listening to a lot of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and even some Joy Division songs, and they all made me wanna change the style of my voice.

Track listing:
1. Sundance Jupiter
2. Youth Algorithms
3. Temporary Relief

In the period after releasing the Youth Algorithms EP, I recorded a collection of other songs under the veil of 'Incentive' which were publicly released in 2014.
