The Skinny

What's Between is nuanced, unhurried, and in places, quite sublime.

The 405

WIFE marries the intensity and raw energy of Kelly's background in metal with the subtler inflections of electronica and aquatic pop fluidity; in doing so, he forges an intense album, well worth getting sucked into.


Handling the production duties on What's Between is the Haxan Cloak, whose own cavernous soundscapes are perhaps the most metal thing in electronic music these days. The pairing is apt and the results are fantastic.


As desolate and coldly beautiful as a windswept moor, ‘What’s Between’ refuses to yield simple answers but rewards deep exploration.

FACT Magazine

While its completeness verges on being just a bit too clean – its theme too constant and perfectly articulated for the record to feel quite as messy as the subject matter might make a listener long for – What’s Between is still a resounding success.


It all makes for a complex, often beautiful debut album that affords Kelly even more expression and possibilities than what he's done before.


What's Between provides some compelling glimpses at Kelly's cimmerian headspace, but knowing that he possesses the ability and the vision to flesh out his own ideas, it's hard not to be left wanting more.
