RADIO PLAY: BBC 6 Music – Gideon Coe

BOOMKAT

This is such deeply memorable stuff, and more importantly focuses on real songs. It’s just that the songs have a little more weight to them than usual, and like Sigur Ros before it, the texture and depth is what will have you coming back for more again and again. Gorgeous.”

TASTY – 9/10

There is such a warm and atmospheric feel to this album, enveloping the listener in the first few seconds and never releasing them until the final few chords have faded from earshot. This is a refreshing and ultimately incredible release and one that will surely see more glowing praise showered in the forthcoming months”

WHISPERIN & HOLLERIN 9/10

Intent listening is essential. That shouldn’t prove a problem though: in its serene yet compelling way, ‘With Our Heads in the Clouds and Our Hearts in the Fields’ positively commands it.”

FLUID RADIO

With Our Heads In The Clouds And Our Hearts In The Fields is an album built by a pool of expert sound crafters. In addition, the two central performers, Witlzie and Acada, ensure that their experimental desires do not interfere with creating an accessible auditory experience for the listener. The result is pop music with an ambient twist and one that should appeal to fans and new listeners alike.”

IS THIS MUSIC 4.5/5

Beautifully delicate, moody and deeply poignant while too portraying a stick-in-your-mind quality that rounds the album off perfectly.”

LEONARD’S LAIR – Blog

By being both beautifully sung and immaculately played, it is hard to fault this latest Sleepingdog album. Some may prefer their music to be a little rough around the edges but Acda and Wiltzie provide romance, innocence and peace all at once. That’s no small triumph.”

DOA

The songs unfold with an understated elegance as soothing voices emerge from the colorful, melancholic backgrounds. Ambient drones and spacey synths blossom with shimmering arrangements while the contemplative stylings form a winning combination of radiant sonics and lilting choruses.”

TEXTURA – album of the month

The album’s title is well-chosen, given how much its material combines the ethereal and the emotional into a haunting, forty-three-minute collection that ends up sounding both earthy and heavenly. Though it’s early in the year, one might anticipate seeing Our Heads in the Clouds and Our Hearts in the Fields on at least a few year-end ‘best of’ lists.”
