"The music here is pastoral, mysterious, eerie – Morrison’s voice,
and her multi-layered harmonies, weave an almost sacred, spectral air
over the instrumentation, which itself conjures a tightly woven web of
mist shrouded shapes and softly-shifting figures, gliding across the
soundscape like time honored ghosts. It’s an album for listening to while you’re waiting for sleep,
when darkness brings out even broader impressions, and hallucinations
too". Dave Thompson,
"Bury the Forests is a carefully crafted and sublime slice of psychedelic folk. This is the real deal, a genuine artifact that doesn’t simply seek to emulate or provide an imitation of the original, antiquated acid folk recordings of the past but which instead carries on and furthers the tradition in an individual and fascinatingly unique fashion".
Folk Horror Revival.
"If your penchant is for music possessed of a spirituality, a heady enchantment and an almost
impossibly bucolic charm then Bury The Forests is hardly likely
to disappoint." Ian Fraser, Terrascope Magazine.
