“Smokey saxophone-filled electronic exploration that journeys from cyberpunk alleyways to the stars and back… bounding bass lines and ear-grabbing melodies.” -Artiphon
“Vocoder-heavy conceptual lyrics, unusual instruments and driven by electronic beats. What results is a richly-textured ride, guided by two staples of the Triangle music scene.” -The Triangle Guide
