“With strong shades of The Postal Service, and Incubus running through the veins of each of these songs, Pisaq and Kossov are able to write fantastic lyrics with phenomenal melodies that evoke emotions from every corner of your heart.”

““The Lost and the Found” is a dreamy downtempo track dressed with reverberated orchestral electrical arrangements. With that being said, the progressive bass line and shuffling beat adds an impressive balance, bringing the track back down to earth. There’s just enough of each instrument so as to not overpower and drown out any one sound.”

“Welcome to Deviations, an electronic alternative project from Aurganic. The album is a mix of mystifying rock, and experimental indie elements. Composed on two long time friend, Michael Kossov and Leo Pisaq, Aurganic, have taken their songwriting and signature layered production to the next level with Deviations. Final Grade: A”

“It was a very enjoyable departure, one that will prompt a more in depth look at the evolution of electronica song writing. The album is not jolting or fragmented, but bleeds nicely in to each track, thus living up to its album title in the most respectable of ways. I recommend this album to anyone looking for a refreshing take on an ambitious melding of musical genres, and to anyone not looking for something completely different, but something that deviates from the predictable norm.”

“Aurganic are a band to watch precisely because they use every deviation as an opportunity to display their versatile and plentiful musical strengths”

“It may be trite to say that art tries to convey to the outer world that which one feels inside. Banality aside, it’s true. With Deviations, Aurganic offers a display is what it means to make art. Here are 12 tracks that take stabs at capturing the often vague and conflicting emotions that make up inner human existence.”

“Deviations, due out on September 24th, is airy alternative music, a blend of the organic and inorganic. 'Lucid' slides along on a slinking Massive Attack beat as the duo's voices weave in and around a thin and strip down guitar line, hitting sublime harmonies every other measure.”

“Irregular time signatures; passages which seem improvised in their complexity and ease; and the smooth flow of sounds across a page, almost an aural representation of a yacht sailing across the billowing sea. Much use is made of a variety of instruments and styles, from the almost Glitch opening and underpinning "Pleasure Addict" to the ambient sounds which course though much of the music.”

“Aurganic’s new album Deviations treads a variety of stylistic waters, ranging from downtempo-inspired electronica in the vein of Massive Attack and recent Radiohead to dizzying alt-rock like Muse. It’s clear that their mutual interests in electronica, jazz, and art-rock had a large role in the success of Deviations. One particular standout from the album is “The Lost and the Found”, a deeply soaring effort with touches of strings, twangy guitars, and highly professional vocal work. It treads somewhere between a ballad and emotive rocker, a solid in-between that aptly represents Aurganic’s eclectic stylistic vision.”

“Aurganic are what you get when two people with a history of punk bond over a shared love of jazz, rock and electronic texture, and decide to make music that’s bang in the middle. Their sophomore album ‘Deviations’ has a muscular core, a degree of experimentation, some singalong moments, a cold set of textures and provides a good listen through eleven tracks.”

“Their latest track ‘Choices’ is a mixture of different genres which have been cleverly fused together to make a unique and interesting piece. Choices can be best described as a cross between alternative rock and electronica, the breakdowns throughout create a nice atmosphere which is carried through by the interlocking heavier elements. The structure of the song is ambitious and works very well, the vocals are excellent and overall we thought it was a great track.”
