What other people have been saying
Hong Kong In The 60s’ homemade but elegant electronic song with its strange bubbles and clangs
— The Wire
Their sound is a seductive wave of effervescent electronics, seductive harmonies and warm waves of sound. Fine pop songs etched with something altogether more abstract and interesting.
they cast a bewitching spell, and their album is a subtle but charming sliver of pop perfection.
Utilising a minimal sonic palette […], the trio’s songs are ripe with disarming melody.
— The Wire
even at its most gently experimental, the album can’t help delivering exquisite melodies.
Using a motley array of vintage synthesizers and drum machines, they craft self-effacing, discreet pop songs that unfold in a sepia haze.
A charming summoning […] with a weird sheen of degraded international glamour
richly textured vintage keyboard melodies that walk an oddly graceful line between evocative and totally corny. The swishy, squishy keys and synthetic bell tones will transport to you to a classy space-lounge from long ago.
— MTV Iggy
shimmering beige synth tones and tender vocal harmonies to quieten your surroundings and put you in a state of near somnambulent bliss.
hushed, sweetly cooed tones evoking hazy soft-focus memories which are just that little bit too idyllic to be in any way accurate.
