‘seriously impressive in its scope
& virtuosity’ - Cognitive Dissonance
‘the discipline that they display is reminiscent
of avant jazz rock outfits such as Zu & Zs…
Every song is almost bipolar in its construction, yet A Sweet Niche’s vision is transmitted with
sparkling clarity.’ – Echoes & Dust.
The latest album W**** is a compound of Baritone Sax, Guitar Rig and Drums - examined, interpreted and presented through the cooperation of electronics, prepared vocals & bassoon: A calibration of the organic and the electronic.
