About Tomas Nordmark
“A sorcerer of the musics of the nocturne, he’s happy to thrust into the shadows and pull out what he finds there. “Nights” is certainly one of the most beautifully terrifying pieces you’ll have heard since Ravedeath 1972 dropped. Sometimes it is just beautiful, and that’s absolutely valid; when Tomas allows his amassed aural weaponry to scour, though; that’s where this album touches immense.”
Exit Ghosts, Backseat Mafia
“It’s like standing beside a frozen lake and sounds, carried by gusts of wind, from all over the planet can be heard. But they are fragmented, disintegrated from their perfect original. They still carry with them a trace of beauty or sorrow, but they are no longer what they once were.”
Exit Ghosts, Treblezine
“..a meditative, nearly ambient foundation: sustained, consonant tones like distant horns. But the foreground is jittery, full of unpredictable, glassy tones that briefly hover, then disappear.”
Eternal Words, New York Times
“..a heavenly, palate-cleansing series of minty-fresh synthesised drones and bleeps that manage to tell stories that resolve without even hinting at melody.”
Eternal Words, The Guardian
