What the critics say
Their new single, ‘Defender’, is buzzing mix of sequencers and fuzzy guitars underpinning a louche and cool delivery, making for an engaging and absorbing release. Backseatmafia.com
Of Ghosts’ is a genuine long-play record that sits alongside Leonard Cohen’s early work or mid-period Nick Cave, as an album to be taken seriously. Alan Harrison, Rocckingmagpie.wordpress.com
An English Velvet Underground for the 21 Century. Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music.
They have the kind of listen-to-me intensity that Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds manage to conjure up…and the instrumentation is exemplary throughout. Incredibly rich, and with plenty of sweet melodies to boot, this is like setting down with your favourite bar of quality dark chocolate. Diane Peterson, Crack Magazine
Shot through with contemplative Nick Cave-esque eerie soundscapes, tracks like Child So Careless show a studied mix of melody and sombreness akin to the National’s more recent material, while The Temple’s dark intensity is quietly powerful. Of Ghosts is a well-structured album that makes you hit repeat as soon as it’s over, continually surprising. Claire Dupree, NARC Magazine
An intricate collection of lyrically dense tales filled with hopeless nostalgia and dark romance. The instrumentation is rich with bass driven melodies and wandering piano parts that mix well with the low, muscular vocals and poetic lyrics. Karthick Murugesan, Echoesanddust.com
