marrying delicate, whispering vocals with stirring acoustic accompaniment and otherworldly electronics hums, the experimental folk partnership have created an album of stark beauty that will appeal to fans of William fitzsimmons, Elliott smith and the barr brothers.

these 12 short songs are fragile, nuanced, and honest. In contrast to the existential freakout that is Eyeland, or the folk-faithful incubator albums, this feels delicately purposeful. Acoustic arrangements are peppered with subtle and fragmented electronic elements. Rhythms are physically composed on the centre loops of vinyl records. be sure to check out darlingside and s. carey if you enjoy the elegant vocals at work here. “an immersive, fluid and emotionally fragile listening experience” 8/10 – uncut.
