Reviews for ‘Looking Through New Window’ -

“This is music that will. For me, always be associated with the slow, Eternal time between 3 AM and sunrise; it’s music for dawnings, for new beginnings, for Terence Malick films. It’s a resolutely benevolent kind of music, perfect for babies and munkins and lost boys recovering from their acid supping. Gentleforce is cosmic music via Kepler; music that works in spheres, that unfolds gently, that announces itself by absence; of inferior beasts, of dissonant planes. Even the name is perfect; this gentle force, this incline, this guiding hand. More people need this music than realise it.
- Loki (An Idiot’s Guide to Dreaming)

'Looking Through New Window' is a half-hour symphony in which Murray throws everything he's got into the pan - eerie field recordings, neo-classical overtures, crackle-infused deep house romanticism a la Lawrence/early Kompakt, shoegazey vocal textures and kosmische synth-drift - and it's testament to his talent and maturity that the whole sounds coherent and concise rather than saggy or self-indulgent. Gentleforce is an apt name for the project - for this is music that's soothing and sensuous but also very much sure of itself, with serious momentum, and not a dull moment, throughout. Recommended for fans of Fennesz, Four Tet, Border Community and other agents of dreamy, emotive electronics".
- Boomkat (UK), April 2012.

“...I've tried to convey here what a magical piece of work this is but as always words will never describe the sonic beauty of what I'm hearing here, a spiritual aural love letter to the light and dark of our hidden surroundings.”
-9/10 stars. Norman Records (UK). April 2012
