Press Quotes



"The harmonies and chords are fascinating, the music flows, undulates and strives purposefully towards the light. The music creates the illusion of being underwater in the darkness, looking upwards towards a distantly shining light… The strings sound magnificent... Impressive!"
Keskipohjanmaa

"Into the heart of light is almost surprisingly melodic with beautiful string lines that form a pleasing symmetry. Under the compact surface it bubbles with life and energy."
Österbottens tidning
