Here are some positive words on our new record so far:

“It not only brims with startling invention, but is likely to put them on the map as go-to soundtrackers of urban-life melancholy, alongside the likes of not-so anonymous beat trafficker Burial and Brian Eno-collaborator Jon Hopkins”
the Quietus

“Back with a bang, really exciting new album”
Jez Nelson, BBC R3’s Jazz On 3

“Psych-jazz epic”
8/10 Uncut

4/5 Mojo
