'…a bewitching brew of gently ardent and deeply intimate songs, with a sensuously haunting and slow-burning thrust...Beautiful.' (AU Magazine)
'…post-rock music at its instinctive, risk-taking finest…’ (The Irish Times)
‘…a set of expertly crafted, minimalist works…channeling Nick Cave at his most compelling...’ (Hot Press)
'Songwriter Richard Bolhuis cleverly combines innate pop sensibility with grand neo-classical scope, setting it all off with a twist of mystical folk spookiness...A beautiful, bewitching experience.' (The Post)
