“The starlit nocturnes of Fovea Hex bind electronics, drones and voices into song-spells that are untimely in the best possible sense; their intimacy and raw emotional power feel centuries old, but the experimental sound-design can be shockingly modern.” Drew Daniels (Matmos)

Critical Reaction to The Salt Garden 1 and 2

5 Against 4 (UK)
“Whenever Irish experimental electronic folk group Fovea Hex put out something new, it’s not just a cause to rejoice but a guarantee of something unique and indescribably wonderful….”

The Wire (UK)
“….fragile baroque instruments and synthy atmospheres surround Simonds’s singing and songwriting, both on better and less predictable form than ever…… A Robert Wyatt’s Rock Bottom for the 21st Century: emotionally deepens with extra listens”

Brainwashed (US) (Readers Poll Winner: Single of the Year, 2016 for Salt Garden 1)
“Another beautiful piece in a flawless catalog… ”

Igloo (US)
“The superlatives left to describe this unique chamber ensemble are fast running out… ”

Dusted (US)
“… a blending of acoustic and electronic that attains a kind of smooth, vatic timelessness. Every element feels precisely placed and oddly haunting… Spellbinding”.

Subjectivisten (NL)
“…an almost indefinable sound…….the music is a hybrid of (dark) ambient, experimental music, neoclassical and ethereal folk and yet no label feels completely comfortable. . It is of an unearthly beauty!”

Touching Extremes (IT)
“no actual comparison is conceivable – sonic poetry”

Gonzo Circus (NL)
“if you like unique sirens like Nico, Dead Can Dance and This Mortal Coil, you will also unconditionally embrace Fovea Hex.”
