The Billboard
“More than worth the wait….No Ghostless Place shimmers with emotion and fragile beauty. A+”
- Scene Magazine

“A black and silver sheen drapes their downbeat guitars and pianos in reverb and shimmering gentility…devastating and dark”
- Lorraine Carpenter, Montreal Mirror

“[singer] Eric Howden has a voice that registers with angels”
- Cam Lindsay, Exclaim! Magazine

“Beautifully constructed – and decidedly dark – musical visions”
- The Ottawa Sun

“[No Ghostless Place] is a slow burning disc often so sonically beautiful that you can lose sight of it if you are not careful… with each listen an appreciation for its patience and subtleties makes ground on you”
- Fazer Magazine

“The Canadian equivalent of Sigur Ros, Mercury Rev, or Radiohead – luscious, ambient, and dream-like”
- Decoy Magazine

“The next Broken Social Scene, Stars, Stills, and dare I say Arcade Fire of your generation. I’m dumbfounded when a band drops out of the sky so fully formed and dangerously rocking from the get go!”
- Phil Klygo, Weewerk Records

“A mournful masterwork”
- James Reaney, London Free Press

“Codes and Secret Longing is a brilliant excursion into melancholia”
- n3wblog

“[Codes and Secret Longing] is an album of haunting beauty…never has the sound of a CD so suited the material.. .totally atmospheric and seamless…this one’s already slotted for a place on my Top 5 of the year.”
- Dave Clarke, Scene Magazine

“Eloquently written…immaculately comprised of talent…blessed with some of the most beautiful guitar and vocal passages i have heard in a very long time”
- RCat.ca

“Eerie…emotionally bruising…gorgeous”
- wavelengthtoronto.com

“A total gem. It was beautiful…driving guitars, ethereal sounding…”
- Amanda Putz, CBC
