What the press were saying about their last EP:

They create whole weather systems with their long looming chords” – 4 STARS UNCUT

Ataraxia/Taraxis reinstates Pelican at the top of the instrumental food chain, and if they continue like this, they show no sign of coming down.” – 8/10 DROWNED IN SOUND

A potent reminder of why we love them. Heavy, expansive guitar patterns form the two songs at the core of the EP…It’s the crunching doom of ‘Parasite Colony’ which is most impressive though, swaggering as it does with the vigour of a band still at the peak of their powers.” – 8/10 ROCKSOUND

They sounds as tight and as powerful as ever here.” – ROCK A ROLLA

Welding intricate cinematic elements to accomplished hard rock” – 4 STARS BIG CHEESE
