CRITIC REVIEWS

DIY
It’s a remarkable debut. Just when Gengahr look to be settling into a rhythm, they showcase something different. By no means a ‘something for everyone’ full-length (it’s too devilish for the faint-hearted), it’s still a work that’s defined by its own dynamism.

The Line of Best Fit
Floaty angst in abundance, Gengahr have produced an all encompassing soundtrack to this year’s briefest romances and most curelly broken hearts.
80
NME
The result is a record that cloaks Gengahr’s inherent weirdness in peaceful melodies you’ll want to wallow in for hours.

The Guardian
This is psychpop with heavy emphasis on the pop, its frazzled melodies feeling both unsettling and festival-ready, and noodling kept to a respectable minimum.

Clash
'A Dream Outside' offers ample proof of the theory that albums which sound as though they were fun to make are often a joy to listen to. This is savvy, intelligent music.

Drowned in Sound

It’s Gengahr's commitment to weirdness on A Dream Outside that puts them many streets ahead.

As debuts go, it’s not on the same level as their mates Wolf Alice, but it is a compelling listen and a worthy addition to any burgeoning music library.
60
Loud and Quiet

It’s a mixed bag, and the LP feels like a band who have rushed out their debut album before fully fleshing out a coherent sound.

It's different and refreshing. A very good debut effort offering a lot of different sounds and weirdness across it's 11 tracks.
