The Big Takeover â a New York music magazine writes: “Itâs easy to recall David Bowie and Tin Machine upon listening to this, as well as the wonderful compositions between Angelo Badalamenti and Trent Reznor for David Lynchâs Lost Highway soundtrack, not to mention Brian Eno at his most upbeat and Moby. Thereâs even a dash of Underworld in their less hallucinogenic moments. This is superb and addictive â one of the better tracks of 2018 thus far.”
