Collin Vs. Adam started as a self-described two-dude band, made up of Collin Buchanan and Adam Hogg. Last spring and summer, they added Mike Motley and Mason Mauldin, both of Sugar and the Raw, Big Boots and other Little Rock bands.

They opted to keep the name the same, as opposed to the slightly unwieldy Collin Vs. Adam Vs. Mike Vs. Mason. The band's new members helped expand their sonic palette, but subdued synthesizer-infused pop remains the focus. The group's full-length album "Centuries" offers icy sonic textures and heavily delayed guitars aplenty.

The new track "Aurelia" is a haunting piece of instrumental synth pop that starts off with a pinging drum machine, delicate guitar line and lush synthesizer, slowly unfolding over the course of three minutes, 15 seconds.
