“Hailing from Sardinia, Coronas is a percussionist at heart, and so the album is full of acoustic rhythms posing as melody and vice versa; some locked down in-beat while others tumble free. I’ve got a soft spot for the percussionist’s approach to composition, and this release in particular recalls Hexlove’s Harp Drafts, with a little bit of The Sea and Cake-style Chicago sound. The Dream Trilogy’s sleeptalky guest vocals are remeniscent of Sigur Ros, and I wouldn’t be surprised if “Kid A” the song was an influence as well — in particular the rhythm of “Sea Dream” and the bassline to “Serene nightmare” which sounds like a slowed down take on one aspect of the Kid A melody.”
