“Their previous blueprint of Divine Comedy’s update on Scott Walker remains, but it’s expanding: This lush pop full of douceur de vivre evinces the lovely gauze of Harry Nilsson with mid-period Tim Buckley.” —The Big Takeover
“Strings, french horn, melodic bass, snare drums, guitar, and Perry Serpa’s rich expressive voice come together in a grand orchestral sweep that’s instantly accessable and catchy” —Freeway Jam
“Gorgeous opener “I Will Always Be Swimming In This Sea” is Prince, Mercury Rev and Sgt Pepper-era Beatles, the epic “Vacationing” is Tom Waits, Todd Rundgren and even a little bit Coldplay, and the pained, soaring “Precious” is the Bad Seeds meets Philly soul with Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis on vocals. Delightful, the lot of it.” —NME
