"...‘Ngan!’ is the sound of a band looking above and beyond modern archetypes of guitar-fuelled noise in search of a strange & beguiling personal vision & dissolving barriers of distance, cultural context & geographical inconvenience with a confident & warm-hearted flourish." (Rocket Recordings)

‘Ngan!’ is an album suffused with a potent sense of wonder - it’s bookended by the enormous twin psychic monoliths of ‘Roadhouse’ and ‘My Son’, which form dreamlike aural travelogues clocking in at around a quarter-hour each, and take influences as diverse as the fiery avant-six-string scree of Atlas Sound, the classic motorik of Neu! and Kompakt label techno, and sculpt them into a wide-eyed, kaleidoscopic sweep of sound that the band themselves, keen to break free of generic convention, dub ‘stargaze’. It’s a style which nods to the melodic sweetness of The Flaming Lips or Tame Impala as much as the synapse-shifting dynamics of Animal Collective or My Bloody Valentine. ‘Myriads’ is nothing less than a sweet and somewhat slightly dazed pop song - distantly related to the muse of Syd Barrett, yet filtered through the band’s ambitiously hallucinogenic soundworld and propulsive rhythmic drive. Elsewhere,on  ‘Moognes’ the collision of melancholy vocal harmonies, luminous guitar melody and in-the-red intensity makes for a sound as bracing as it is beatific" (Rocket Recordings)
