melding deeply textured electronic production - honey to the ears of Kiasmos and Rival Consoles fans - with lush vocal delivery akin to Rhye, a dreamy, hazy wooziness, orbiting Boards of Canada’s sonic galaxy, pervades throughout this striking album.
the intricate sound design could be mistaken for a Thom Yorke remix of a Tim Hecker track. the pair’s shared production alchemy represents a mutual elevation and inspiration; a new concoction very different to its base materials. it serves as a bird’s eye view over the span of Hirola’s production and song-writing artistry; its abundance of sound design, melody, field recordings and room-shaking bass delivering greatly, and yet promising more. “Exquisite” - Mary Anne Hobbs - BBC 6Music.
