about

"...introspective and sophisticated songs glazed in noise . . . For all its existential thrashing, Interplay exudes warmth. Even the harshest moments are grounded, exploring chaos but never spinning out. Seeking out the beauty in an array of precarious feelings, Debard follows her contradictory impulses into the ether. As she asks with the album’s closing lyric, 'What else is there to do?'" -Pitchfork

"Musically, the album is utterly free and breezy, with the vast array of luscious orchestral and synthetic timbres interleaving around a vaporous rhythmic pulse, the melodies and chords somehow collaged together without seeming atonal, while Debard’s vocal delivery abandons strict tunes and pristine delivery in favor of an infectiously blissed out grin behind every word . . . dreamy perfection." -The Quietus

"The album could be compared to a less sinister version of Inga Copeland’s Lolina, but may in fact have more in common with Rick Holland and Brian Eno’s poetronica. When YlangYlang says 'I wear my emotions at the nape of my neck,' we felt that." -Aquarium Drunkard

"There is a human quality to the sound; the music is soothing, yet disjointed, complicated yet appreciable. In the end, Interplay is a stunning record that avoids being pretentious yet is striking, challenging and very listenable." -Exclaim

"Magnificent, warming, beautiful... stunning orchestration." -Independent Music Podcast

"Like following a path into a dream." -Exposé

"...raw and poetic." -FACT Magazine

"...a rich and eclectic work." -Le Devoir

"...liberating and engulfing." -CultMTL

"Very free... totally January mood." -BTRtoday

"...gorgeous and serene." -Post Trash
