Blogs Quotes 

  • "Phototaxis balances the comfortable and the uneasy. It rolls around in its own skin, smears itself with different colors, settles in on a hopeful arc. Pretty Ugly is a wide and varied record that's brave enough to snarl at the fear curled inside it. What else can you ask?" (Dinguson)

  • "It is therefore not a surprise that a bit less modern genre, soul music, finds its way more and more in close grip with various threads of the electro scene: the live, warm, slow and hot react with the programmed, cold, fast-paced and frigid. To have and have not, to yield and deny, an unending passionate Ouroboros that wraps us with vengeance and lets go with a promise, that's what this newly bred offspring of music and digital age brings: electro-soul." (Music Mafia UK)

  • "Phototaxis sounds like the lovechild of Macy Gray and the Sneaker Pimps. Their sultry blues jazz and trip hop combination is endearing. You'll find yourself gently swaying to the grooves of the tracks and being mesmerized by the sound. (Frostklick)

  • - "its an awesome record especially for people who adore the whole trip hop/jazz blend. Featuring great composition and recording, it is a real gem in a sea of overabundant mediocrity. Take a listen and see if you like it too. (Frostklick)
