CRITIC REVIEWS

No Ripcord

It might be for the best if you stopped reading about Both Lights and just started listening to it.

The palette is nothing short of interesting, making Both Lights both a complex and fascinating listen in equal measure.

NME

Yet from such uncertainty arrives a multicoloured explosion of afrobeat, jazz, art-pop and more that amplifies each pain of creation and the elation of its completion

Beats Per Minute

Crafting an album that’s bold and expansive but manageable and narratively sound is no easy task, and that’s exactly what AU have done.

70
The 405

AU's sound is constantly tossing and turning, which means that you can hear more than you bargained for.

Pitchfork

His insistence of forward motion leaves the listener without much time to settle down and enjoy the view.
