    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Panoramic, synthetically symphonic and a lot of fun. Print edition only

  3. 8.0 |   Q

    An exhilarating ride from a group who sound completely revitalised. Print edition only

  4. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    There probably won’t be a better instrumental album than this in 2015. It will certainly be one of the most inventive, delicate and fearless records the year will offer
