at once as affirming & empowering as it is dark & brooding - Percussive, African inspired poly-rhythmic electro-pop melds into raw, techno-driven beats, then into strange ambient sonic art territory & back again.

This album takes you on an unfamiliar journey; different textures that shake you to the very core. After a long wait Karin & Olof have perfected what they were both so strong at, as Fever Ray & Oni Ayhun’s immaculate production's edge combine the best pop elements of songs like ‘Pass this on’ with the darker repetition of ‘Silent Shout’ & the more avant-garde turns of ‘Tomorrow in a year’. A sprawling, epic, at times overwhelmingly ambitious work of art, expect nothing but anticipate everything. It’s no easy listen, but sure is a powerful, demanding one.

jez recommends : "Raw, unashamedly experimental, but within those hard edges  are the most breathtakingly exuberant electro-pop songs and poly-rhythmic live percussion. A rewarding, ever-revealing, listen".

natasha recommends : "This may have come with a weight of expectation & although it occasionally misses the mark, this brooding & textural, challenging yet captivating  avant-garde-electro-pop return from the swedes, delivers more & more with every listen."
