" Imagine Lana Del Rey as a goth-rock ghost haunting a sunken ship... Aldridge’s emotive alto croons, whispers, and wails as liquid strings and effects paint a dark underwater landscape. As it were, the sinking of Titanic served as a major source of inspiration for Echoes & Waves, and the band embarked on musical pilgrimages to the dock where the ship set sail and to the hometowns of victims to record sounds. An impressive debut effort, executed to chilling effect."

"It’s goth. It’s metal. It’s rock. It’s pop. It’s, weirdly, a little bit soul music. It’s prog, ferchrissake. It’s future. It’s ambient. It takes a bunch of dark, eerie, interesting genres and stirs them together in a pot with loud, intricate guitars (courtesy Afghan Whigs’ Rick McCollum) at the fore. You think to yourself, one song in (the Nine-Inch-Nailsy “Mother”) “oh, I think I know what this is going to sound like,” and then it doesn’t sound anything like that."
