“Sprawling space age sounds with mathematic deliberation and hypnotic rhythms.”

“It’s a collection of songs, of twisting and intertwining melodies and beat patterns, that make the listener want to get up and jump around; they’re songs for handclaps and finger snaps.”

-Drowned in Sound

Mirrored is easily the most instrumentally intensive album I’ve heard this year.”
