Press Quotes On Debut Album:
Nialler9 - "The record shows talent in spades from the alternative electronic artist. Often coupling pop song structures with electro inspired sound palettes and a splash of moody introspection lyrically, Dormant Boy is surprisingly fully formed for a debut release"
The Last Mixed Tape - "Sitting on a strong bedrock of electronic beats, the pops and clicks that populate Dormant Boy’s sonic backdrop perfectly wrap themselves around the floating vocals on tracks like ‘Eyes’ and ‘Always’"
8Radio - "Excellent"
Dan Hegarty - "“It's inventive, captivating, & it has that little extra ingredient that helps it stand out from everything else”
Limerick Post - ‘Dormant Boy’ is a lavish and joyous electronic production.
REMY - "Regardless of whether you are a horrendous music snob, a happy go merry casual music listener, or that elusive Goldilocks in between, if you can't connect somewhere with this album, you may be dead inside."
