REVIEWS

"Why / Liar / Gone unnerves as much as it soothes. It’s stark and it’s raw, both emotionally and socially, and the album’s tracks call to mind vast windswept landscapes and grey skies overhead. There’s also an introspective feel to the album, where beauty is shadowed by sorrow. So if you’re searching for mesmeric music that marries desolation to melancholy, then the heartbroken plains of Why / Liar / Gone await." (SixNoises)

"Bent Folk, led by Dick Whyte, is a New Zealand fringe folk project specializing in sprawling acoustic experiments reminiscent of early Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Josh T. Pearson. Bursting with tension and melancholy, these songs are soaked with the blood of the desolate country, the abandoned industry, our internal wars. Whyte’s vocals are impossible to ignore, and married with Alison Studens’ organ drone and Bent Folk’s tear-tinged acoustic minor chord melodies, expect nothing less than your ears to be reduced to a pile of embers when the music stops. Absolutely essential listening." (David Hampton, SlyVinyl)

"Liar is a drawn out dirge, like finding yourself stuck at a family reunion for a distant branch of your family, and the reunion’s at the TAB, and the food is savouries... It’s the sound of anxiety brushing against your neck. Unforgiving to the listener. It makes you feel empty, and spare." (Really Real Reviews)
