With only one listen I knew I was going to be buying this album. It rips you out of your seat and carries you on its back across diverse trails and terrains. I love when an album can be more of an experience and an adventure through foreign lands rather than just a collection of sounds. And it's their first release!

Floral is the audial equivalent of a three dimensional Aboriginal dot painting. Vibrant textures of climbing hills and cascading waterfalls of notes, bombard listeners erratically via tempo and elevation. Getting lost in the rushing ascent and feeling the thrill is like the wind to your back! This is to be expected, almost guaranteed when a group has sufficient technical ability. You can’t take enough steps back to see what vision Floral has. Kenny McGalem
