Building on the more intricate and thoughtful approach of 2012's Observator, Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo craft a sound that's full of the duo's expected overdriven-to-the-point-of-breaking guitars, but also has lots of breathtaking dynamics and more focus on beats and rhythms than usual.

Time Out London

Above all ‘Pe’ahi’ is a thoroughly enjoyable skim across the top of the Danish duo’s murky, unknowable fathoms.


There’s huge amounts of skill in the balance they find, in creating these brutal roaring clouds of noise and then contradicting it by positioning something beautiful within.

The Line of Best Fit

Pe-Ahi, despite being entertaining, cries out for something we haven’t heard from them before.

Drowned in Sound

Pe’ahi is an uneven reinvention, but it’s a brave one, too - the manner of its release isn't the only surprise that comes with it.
