‘distinctive, witty, arresting songs (…) An imaginative first disc that mirrors our current musical landscape’ – Fiona Maddocks, The Observer (full review here)
‘witty and imaginative (…) joyous and heartbreaking’ – John Lewis, The Guardian (full review here)
‘as delightful an encounter as the ensemble is in real life (…) so many delights on their album, you never know what’s going to happen – it’s great hearing such a variety of composers finding interesting ways of using this ensemble’s unique resources (…) a uniquely engaging ensemble’ – Andrew McGregor, Record Review, BBC Radio 3
‘[HERE WE ARE] will surely be representing Delphian, alongside guitarist Sean Shibe’s Bach set, on many “best of” lists (…) There are many startling things about The Hermes Experiment, beginning with the group’s line-up of soprano voice, clarinet, harp and double bass, which blends so well its singularity ceases to be relevant’ – Keith Bruce, The Herald (full review here)
‘brilliant album’ – Hannah Peel, Night Tracks, BBC Radio 3
‘buzzing with invention and shimmering with colour’– Apple Music
