The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - THE TAKE CRITICS’ CHOICE -

Cork man Eoin French’s 2017 al­bum, Wild Alee, was a de­but of beau­ti­fully con­structed falsetto-laden am­bi­ent elec­tronic mu­sic with big, skyscrap­ing mo­ments. The al­bum is get­ting a re-re­lease in the US on BMG, and a new EP, Then There Was War, will be re­leased in June. Kansas fea­tures on the re­lease and finds French’s an­themic, glacial mu­sic adding pow­er­ful lay­ers of synth noise and voice sam­ples that place it in a pan­theon equal to the scale of Bon Iver’s most re­cent al­bum, 22, A Mil­lion.
