Pocket Universe / Press

“The band's return to form—that form being a mixture of instrumental, sometimes sung, sometimes spoken-word songs imagined through '80s synth washes, expansive industrial soundscapes and, occasionally, rootsy folk rock—comes as part of this year's celebration of Art's Birthday.”

“Pocket Universe are an interesting group. They remind me, in some ways, of Von Magnet(1). It's foreign sounding, it fuses a lot of different styles...I hear modern dance, jazz, Arabian with a lilting touch of cabaret. All blended together in a wonderful martini of sound. I dig it a lot, and not just because of the mixture, but also because of the talent involved from creators Lord Mykel and His Moonfyre.”
