Praise for Under Byen:

"Under Byen's great with eerie beauty … chilling and catchy at once. 7.7/10" - Pitchfork

"The interplay, the spaces left out by one instrument, into which another player would insert a sound, seemed carefully arranged, and this sort of socket approach grabbed me instantly. The mood is one of beautiful desolation and melancholy." – David Byrne

"A heavy-riff boom that sounds like Sigur Ros' idea of Black Sabbath … the lyrics are in Danish, but this full-moon magic needs no translation." – Rolling Stone
