Reviews

Full of restrained anthems that mix the sensitivity of Sufjan Stevens with the big hearted warmth and soft harmonies of Elbow.
Uncut Magazine

A haunting and melodically beautiful album, peopled by ghosts and aliens.
Sunday Times

With its criss-crossing themes, multiple narrators and geographical specifics, the record is kin to the interlinked, time-spanning tales of Alan Moore’s eerie Northamptonshire novel Voice of the Fire – praise not given lightly.
