[Drowned In Sound]

"Positively wonderful"
[The 405]

"...emotionally charged, atmospheric ambient soundscapes. Incredible ambient post-rock"
[Fred Perry Subculture]

"You heard it here first; EYRE LLEW are going to be huge."
[Gigantic]

[Daniel P Carter, BBC Radio 1]

[Strathclyde Telegraph]

"Our highlight of The Great Escape festival has to be the intense and ethereal Eyre Llew."
[Outpost Media]

"...one of the most innovative, audacious and downright enthralling live bands on the circuit."
[Bristol Live Magazine]

"Arguably one of the most exciting bands in the UK right now."
[Gigwise]

"Blossoming into something truly remarkable, Nottingham trio Eyre Llew create ambient rock that could soundtrack the ice thawing over the Pennines. Beautiful atmospheric vocals intertwine with evoking rhythms to make stunning soundscapes of sensory magnificence. With tracks like the haunting Vorfreude, they can leave you breathless in an instant."
[Get Into This]

"One of Nottingham's most exciting prospects in years"
[Nottingham City Council]

"It's not an album where you'll be sprawled out on the bed thinking I'm listening to the new record by Eyre Llew, for you're not really even THERE while it plays. It does a fantastic job of transporting you to another place, a better place, and if ever there was a time that such a thing were needed, it's now. And I'm grateful, I really am. You should be too; it's quite simply beautiful." - 9/10

[God Is In The TV Zine]

"The album the culmination of a painstaking and, sometimes, troublesome creative process that put three Nottingham musicians through two-and-a-half years of risk-taking, highs and lows is a labour of love. It represents passion, hard work and belief you will find a way"

[GoldFlakePaint]
