"Close your eyes for a second and picture this: You're driving through downtown by yourself at night. Taking in the city lights, feeling inspired and alive. This is what I picture and feel when I listen to this song."
~ mopodna vol. 1 ~
"I like the whirring, teetering synth that sounds like an angry electric fly; the bass line like a funky caffeinated contrabassoon; the layered, somewhat unsettling vocals of Claire Givens, which really do evoke Purity Ring.
