Mount Alaska

Nialler9: "Strikes the perfect balance between ambient and electronic, a genre rarely as effectively explored in the current Irish music scene."


The Irish Times: "It’s the richness, vibrancy and detail of Shannon’s compositional palette, as much as as any production nous, that makes Strands such a quiet, triumphant thrill."


The Irish Independent: "If you only buy one album from an Irish artist this year, make it this one."
