Works faster and harder than caffeine

Sofia Arreguin: “Step into a sick rhythm. And I mean sickly. Surgery Channel is a constructed world where everything is piercing and pinpointed. Every single word brings confrontation. With an intro as intimate and uncomfortable as this, The C.I.A. make you question what could be happening here…or what they’re after. Denée Segall (vocals, lyrics) is both haunting and seducing us at once with her voice. Something unhinged might be about to happen and they’re calmly dangling it over your head. Is it the possibility of dismemberment? Revenge? This record is an astute observation and blunt critique. Both inward and outward. It is an exploration into how harshly intimate that process can be.”
Following the lead single Impersonator
the trio unleashed a second ripper.
INHALE/EXHALE is a fuzz and buzz crackerjack.
Deranged guitars, deranged drums, and
deranged vocals by Denée. Yes!
Just leave her alone!
