CRITIC REVIEWS

82
Beats Per Minute

Even at a mere 30-minute runtime, awE naturalE is a rich, challenging listen in most every respect. 

80
Consequence of Sound

The distorted piano and vocal loops and simple drum patterns do tend to bleed into each other, and the songs run on the short side, but together they’re a mesmerizing set.

80
musicOMH

It’s a sunshine-soaked odyssey through neo-soul and abstract rap, an excursion that is never disconcerting and never less than devilishly satisfying. 

80
The 405

This is a record that shows immense promise, a record whose trancelike rhythms wash over you

75
Pitchfork

awE naturalE, like Black Up, is a pleasantly surprising resurrection of the Pacific Northwest-via-Brooklyn hippie-hop that we never might have anticipated a few years ago.

70
Drowned in Sound

Disgracefully brief, awE naturalE comes on like a fierce, warm wave and ebbs away before you can even figure out how which way round the surfboard goes.

70
NME

It’s a romp of fearless experimentation, which leaves you curious as to what THEESatisfaction’s new take on soul can offer in the future.
