PRESS REVIEWS:

This album is an accomplished, theatrical, imaginative sound-fest, that operates outside of defined genres.  A work of art well conceived of, and wonderfully crafted by finely skilled masters of their trade.

10/10. – Fresh On The Net

The album’s latest single, album title track “Eyedom” is a hauntingly gorgeous, atmospheric song consisting of swirling electronics, shimmering guitar chords, twinkling keyboard and effortlessly beautiful vocals. Sonically, the song sound as though it’s subtly channelling the cinematic sound of Goldfrapp — but much more sensual and pop-leaning. – Joy Of Violent Movement

Eyedom is probably the most essential, vital trip-hop album of the 21st Century. It’s everything you loved about the mid-’90’s classics from Massive Attack and Portishead mixed with Sneaker Pimps and Sunna to create this fascinating amalgamation yet sound completely original. – Rock and Roll Fables

The musicianship, songwriting and thought put into this album shine straight through and have left a lasting, possibly a bit haunting, impression on us. – MOSH

Americana guitar and slightly trippy bass grooves nestle beside gentle piano at a driving Massive Attack pace, settling effortlessly around Ellem’s divine vocal as ‘Still Life’ plays out this absolutely essential ‘trip-pop’ release. – Vandala Magazine

While there haven’t been many bands that have emerged as glorious as Portishead or Massive Attack in recent memory,We Came As Strangers is a strong contender. They are creating their own unique mix of addictive basslines, ingenious layering with ethereal vocals and arrangements which is a clear recipe for success. It isn’t very often that a band comes along that can fully encompass you into their music to where you feel completely and emotionally connected to it.  It’s very possible WCAS can achieve just that which is why they are one of our Hidden Gems. – The Revue 

 

TRACK OF THE WEEK

‘Eyedom’ takes influence from established long-term players Massive Attack and Portishead, whilst also giving approving nods to the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Philip Glass, Regina Spektor. A dark and brooding track it is a symbol of the working week for sure. – HERE ME RAW
