In Relation To
IN RELATION TO - REVIEW QUOTES
"In Relation To" is a brilliantly original album, with a free, improvised feel, but also with sections of intense complexity."
"The musicians' combination of precision and restraint along with their knack for melody writing gives In Relation To a distinct, beguiling quality"
"...takes listeners on a dizzying jazz-rock journey that demonstrates the band’s technical chops and dynamic creativity."
"...a surprising journey into sonic worlds that skillfully mix rock, indie, jazz and funk"
"...jazzy elements and the time signatures are very prog rock, but there’s also a huge rock/metal vibe and even a post-rock feel, making for something very special."
"...leaves you in a constant state of anticipation for what's to come"
"It’s the best type of improv... An excellent performance. Highly recommended."
"...seduces our ears thanks to the band’s ability to express the whole through the details"
