A hazy nocturnal vibe – evoking post-Floydian soundscapes of Air’s Virgin Suicides soundtrack, or teh slow ambient pulse of the Drive soundtrack. One can also hear the pillowy dream-pop of Beach House, and the stark, grey-scaled R&B minimalism of the xx, with the occasional, well timed hot shot of DFA worthy electro to jolt you out of your reverie” – via SPOTIFY
“crystalline keys and steamrolled melodies” – SELF TITLED
“Attention Seeker bears a moody, mellow bassline, akin in vibe to Metronomy’s She Wants. It could also totally have been part of the soundtrack to The Virgin Suicides – dreamy and unsettling” – NOISEY
“Reminisce, is a wholly original sonic exploration. Listening feels like wandering foggy city streets in the twilight hours” – Q RADIO
“slow, pulsing, dreamy synth clouds and melancholy lyrics, with the occasional blast of uptempo, dancefloor-ready electro” – CBC MUSIC
“recalls classic acts like Eurythmics & Depeche Mode, and feels especially hypnotic when paired with Fader’s vocals, steady & feathery like those of Metric’s Emily Haines. ~ it’s difficult not to be enveloped by the Canadian natives’ lush & dreamy atmospherics” – CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
“With Reminisce, Etiquette submit an emotional, philosophical record expounding on the deeply coded existential experiences of interpersonal and intrapersonal conflict” – EXCLAIM!
“Song after song after song of groove and mood – music built on exquisite bass lines, lovely, cool vocals, and the understanding that people need to be coaxed and seduced onto the dance floor – Sexy-like – “dancey as fuck.”” – HUFFINGTON POST
“Reminisce feels warm and cocooned, with synth melodies that hang low, heavy, and liquid – wrapped tight around Fader’s voice, with a balance between intimacy and spareness that’s reminiscent of bands like the xx” – PITCHFORK
"Reminisce" marks the moment where all Etiquette's experience and aesthetics intersect into a swirling, seductive sound that perfectly complements Julie Fader’s personal songwriting with Graham Walsh’s (Holy F***) command of otherworldly, future-shocked sonics.
