The Official Video for 'On Fire' - Sacred Animals Vs Steffaloo.
Chris Washington-Sare: Blindingly good. Hauntingly ethereal vocals merge with washes of beats, bleeps and synths. Beautiful, simply beautiful. 4.5 beards
Lizzie Banoffee: While I'm sat here listening to this, I'm looking out of the window at the seemingly incessant rain, and I'm thinking that this is the most perfect soundtrack I could ask for right now. They make it all sound effortless. I would echo Chris's sentiments - this is just beautiful. 4 Beards.
Sam Green First few seconds really reminded me of 'No Quarter' by Led Zeppelin which made me listen intently, bit of a shoegaze'esque mix on the wonderful sounding vocal. Up there with the new breed of electronic acts around at the minute particularly Stay+ and No Ceremony. Very well produced dreamy electronica, perfectly executed. 4.5 B's.
Allan Struthers: Another wonderful reminder of how music is now evolving faster than genres can keep up. This is a gem, the droney synth washes and breathy vocals sound beautiful and I really like how disjointed and robotic the beat is. It seems like the sort of thing that would be great to mong out on a sofa to. 4.5 beards
Oliver Perrott-Webb: Take away the wonderful glitchy beat and this is what I imagined the new Sigur Ros album would sound like when they started describing how it was turning out. The instruments are hardly antagonistic, but they certainly work independently of each other under the one banner which very rarely comes off; it's all very well balanced. And most importantly with dreamy electronica, it gets it's sentimentality right; not too little of it to make it seem unthoughtful, but not too much of it so that it feels dishonest. 4 B's.
