“New & Notable: Yi’s dreamy, ambient shoegaze skips and skitters through various experimental passages” ~ BANDCAMP DAILY
“Yi establish a ying-yang approach to their intensity; confident in shoegaze and no-wave
as much as more ambient, rhythmic spaces.” ~ NOISEY

“Nailbiter makes sludgy experimental electro with shades of industrial and a pinch of gothiness. “Smeared” is a short song with a sense of impending doom, and though the sounds are cacophonous, it is still melodious and beat-driven.” ~ SILENT SHOUT
“a moody, threatening sonic vibe” ~ EXCLAIM!
“While writing ‘Do Easy,’ we were interested in manifesting the domestic flow of William Burroughs’s, The Discipline of DE. In Zak Tatham’s video, this domestic order is overthrown; chaos reigns and we break on through to a more instinctual side.” ~ THE FADER
