"But the biggest distinguishing mark of the indie-classical scene is its lack of distinguishing marks. This is music that does not have to argue for its very right to exist, which means it's free to drift into dreamy cul-de-sacs, to explore drift and texture, to smear the borders of form."
-Jayson Greene (Pitchfork)
