"Lupa blends styles to great effect, from the warm, vintage sounds of the Rhodes and saxophone to the sharp, fizzing synthesisers and drum machine. As well as this, electronic effects are used throughout the album, adding a diverse and vibrant texture"

Jazz Journal, Elliot Marlow-Stevens

"(..)The colors of the instruments, found and adapted to the album, made me remember some interviews with the world’s elite string quartets where musicians change their instruments until they find a balance which would best meet the completeness.(..)"
