"A meaningful and dronescaping album which has embalming effects on the soul. The result is somewhere between Ben Frost’s fragile, solitary electronic minimalism, Brian Eno’s discreet music, Vidna Obmana, Loscil or Olan Mill" - Igloo Mag

"The sounds steadily swell and drift, ebb and flow and swell again, with synth sounds as hazy as anything by Celer and as influenced by orchestral manoeuvres as Stars of The Lid or AWVFTS. Lovely stuff, and one to get lost in when you can find the time." - Norman Records

"With hints of Celer, Loscil and a little sprinkle of Eno, your mind and your soul will thank you. Departures Vol 1. is a beautiful piece of work – grab it, listen and create the scene of your life as this is without a doubt a soundtrack of life." - Irregular Crates

"Throughout Departures, Vol. 1, Deschamps and Abercrombie sprinkle their slow, atmospheric expressions with nature-based field recordings, a move that gives the musical dimension a real-world connection and sense of place...long, shimmering trails stretch majestically across limitless skies, and tones murmur at high and low pitches as they elegantly overlap" - Textura
