“Fans of Terry Riley’s “Shri Camel” or Julianna Barwick’s “The Magic Place” will like this one…meditative synth drones and soundscapes that sound almost sacred in places” – Faris Badwan (The Horrors / Cat’s Eyes)
“…haunting and seductive, recalling the atmospheric minimalism of Brian Eno and conjuring up images of celestial angels drifting like ribbons of smoke through the darkness of deep space…” – Bobby Switchblade (Will The Fire)
