  1. 8.0 |   Q

    A beguiling soundtrack for altered states of mind. Print edition only

  2. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Somehow, by taking these backwards steps, Peaking Lights have, rather bizarrely, flown forwards, proving in the process that, when handled correctly, nostalgia can be a fine tool

  3. 7.6 |   Pitchfork

    Peaking Lights’ dreamy mix of dub, new wave, and disco is emboldened by Indra Dunis’ simple, repetitive verses

  4. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    Peaking Lights continue to advance their sound by blurring genre lines and this time found a winning combination of hypnotic reggae beats, airy synths, and semi R&B grooves

  5. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Its languorous, tripy/hippy cocktail is refreshingly unique. Print edition only

  6. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    A series of sounds that appears wonky and disembodied yet produces a satisfying and effective through-line

  7. 6.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    From recording melodies on tape machines backwards, before playing them in reverse, to breaking electronic gear to create their own sounds, the layers run characteristically deep and dubby but the intent isn’t always fathomable

  8. 5.0 |   Clash

    Showing stamina is nothing new for Peaking Lights, but this is a very long album akin to a sauna stay that becomes too hot
