trio from the Derbyshire Dales. Their second album, “Etch

(“the album Four Tet might have made after Rounds’),
The Guardian, Mojo, Uncut (“both warmly familiar and completely,
fearlessly new”), NME, Clash, Drowned In Sound (“with
luminous vibes and electronics that chime, strum, sparkle, dance
and glow, the trio evoke worlds within our own”), The
Financial Times, God Is In The TV, Gig Soup (“one has
to wonder if the band haven’t only created a masterpiece
but also a genre that is their own”), The 405, London
In Stereo, The Skinny, and many more.

If Sigur Ros shared a cottage in Dovedale, they might just sound
as magical as this." - Uncut
