"It is a wondrously dusky record, both beautifully quiet and brilliantly uplifting in its moments of cathartic release. On Murmurs, a glacial mood gives way to a spectacular, vast chorus built on a fuzz-driven guitar. On Evaporate, shades of Yorkshire goth metal legends Paradise Lost shine bright. Pristine begins with a picked guitar and almost inaudible vocals, before a wave of strings lifts it, while the restrained Shallow Water achieves a similar effect through a simple melody.
It’s in its innate sense of it all being so natural that As The Moon Rests is so effective and powerful. These are songs built around a natural talent, an ability to say and express so much even through the simplest of melodies. Alex’s voice, meanwhile, is the rare gift of the natural singer. And impressive as the heavier moments and dramatic swells are, one imagines the impact would be just the same performed on piano and acoustic guitar as it is in full flight."
