The Reviews Are Coming In

We’ve got some great words regarding our new record and we’ve put some of the highlights below. Enjoy!


“Embedding classical-tinged piano and wordless vocals within a thick mass of electronics and field recordings makes the group's sound instantly identifiable and goes a long way towards distinguishing a fully realized recording such as this one.” - Textura

“The open-ended nature of a sonic tapestry is fertile ground for contemplation.  On It Billows Up, humanity meets the rest of nature and is given a musical score: disparate forces forming a fragile harmony." - A Closer Listen

“Using nothing but sine and square wave oscillators, reel-to-reel tape loop collages of field recordings, and live electronically-treated vocal noise, Sontag Shogun continue to breathe an authentic, pure energy into their sound.” - Nest HQ

“Sontag Shogun remain a strange and indefinable group that stands out on an increasingly homogeneous cultural landscape.” - Indie Is Not A Genre

“To say that Sontag Shogun are the equivalent to a sound travelog is an understatement. They, on this album fuse electroacoustic sounds and techniques to field recordings which make you feel as if you are on a journey through various countries with them.” - Drifting, Almost Falling

“Sontag Shogun reveal bits and pieces of a modern fable with each vignette here.” - Tone Shift
