“an intimate and touching album full of emotion”
THE SOUND NOT THE WORD
"Mirror Breathing – and, by extension, Shield Patterns – is something very, very special, and deserves to be both treasured, and recognised for the triumph that it is."
"It is an ash covered place of spectral memories and somber incantation. I don’t know if you need to be alive or dead to reach that place but I want to go. I’m seduced."
"A stunner. For a moment we had the first records of Sneaker Pimps in mind. So yes, it is a sort of trip hop, but because of the countless jazz, classical and experimental sounds, it's so much more than that"
"Mirror Breathing is a variable smorgasbord of texture and depth. Nods very firmly at Björk whilst still retaining Shield Patterns’ distinct voice"
“Haunting, hypnotic and disquieting, Mirror Breathingis an impressive work that warrants time for thought and reflection.”
"With a sense of style that is uniquely their own, Shield Patterns create a deeply moving haunting experience on Mirror Breathing."
