about

This self-produced EP is the first work by Go Ask Alice: eight instrumental tracks, composed between 2012 and 2013, recorded and mixed in 2016 by Matteo Spinazzè Home Studio.
Perfection is terrible is the first verse of Sylvia Plath's poem "The Munich Mannequins".
"Perfection" here is completeness, closure, inability to evolve and reborn, perfection is death.
Perfection is indeed terrible, can't have a child, just as Plath's Munich Mannequins, cold marble statues, beautiful and perfect, frozen with us in a never ending present, the immense futureless present of the "capitalist realism": the end of history.
