Singer-songwriter Christian Kuria has been thrilling us over the past two years with the sporadic release of singles that showcase his talent for creating songs that delve into all the aspects of love and relationships. Little did we know that Christian would gather those singles into one project. He's done just that with the release of his new EP Suspension Of Disbelief.

Most of Suspension Of Disbelief are songs with which we're already familiar. It leads off with the tender heartbreak of "Toroka" and continues with the more recent "Sunbleach." It's a fitting pairing since both songs deal with the end of relationships. The melancholy melodies keep coming with the inclusion of "So" and "Deep Green," with the former riffing on a love-ending argument and the latter ruminating on a breakup in the wake of it occurring. While the obvious theme here is pretty heavy, something about the way Christian tells the story through song makes it all seem beautiful through the ache and longing of the lyrics.

The set closes with a dose of nostalgia with the last pairing of "23rd Street" and "Santorini." "23rd Street," another track that was previously released, finds him stuck in the memory of a love that was as a guitar strums his pain. "Santorini," the only new song of the pack, ends things on a sorrowful note as Christian recounts the dreams of travel to new places made by a couple when love was new, with him singing mournfully on the refrain, "But lately baby, I've been thinking / We'll never make it there."

Suspension Of Disbelief packs a lot of hurt in just under 20 minutes, but it's sure to be the perfect soundtrack for the brokenhearted to sink into as they work to heal from love gone bad.
