'rarefaction' is a reference to sparseness & minimalism

"the band's prowess and charisma is rooted in far more than production and superficial allusions to past artists."
--Joshua Heinrich, Grave Concerns

based in brooklyn since 2001, their sonic influences range from electronica to folk, punk, noise & post-punk to world music & classical.

"despairing melodies that sidle up to the hauntingly beautiful voice and lyrics of this experimental band ...Not for the faint of heart..."
--Jess Shulist, Spill Magazine (NXNE Festival, Toronto)

Angular, melancholic & spare, the tense soundscapes of loss & despair draw largely on the styles of Joy Division, early 4AD artists, & other giants of the post-punk era.

"A fascinating debut. Truly."--Mick Mercer

"sparse but atmospheric, and the songs are stripped-down but well-constructed. I like this a lot."--The One True Dead Angel

"No one else is doing what you're doing."
--Polina Y., NY Decay/Drop Dead Fest & Magazine
