“… psych-pop soundscapes of a billowing expansiveness that recalls MBV, Spiritualized and Mercury Rev at their most abundant … if you’re looking for the album to soundtrack your spring and summer escapism, Ahead of the Rain is it.” The Sunday Times
“… lusciously woozy affair, recalling the hazy, narcotic ballads of US dream-popsters Galaxie 500…potent stuff…” Q
” MBV – meets – Mercury Rev… gorgeous…” Uncut
“…The High Wire’s debut is full of such glimmering, sun-kissed guitar pop that it’ll banish the blues in an instant.” NME
“…a wistful dream of a record…” Clash
“Soft, Shoegazerish bliss…” The Guardian
“ … spacious, somber indie rock that shrouds broad guitar strumming and long, languid keyboard lines in warm, gentle mist.” Rolling Stone
