released October 27, 2017

The full-length debut from Pleasure Systems, the solo project of Clarke Sondermann from Olympia indie-pop band The Washboard Abs. Mixing synth pop, indie folk, and ambient textures, Antumbra Pull is an album about love and fear and the intersection between the two.

"Each track is pure and sincere and deceptively rich, each created within its own little world, or perhaps conjuring a snapshot of a particular time/place in our own." - Various Small Flames

"songs...ranging in tone from Dump to something more like a Tubeway Army session for K Records." - The Wire

"Somewhere between classic singer-songwriter and spherical dream-pop, the music of Clarke Sondermann moves" - éclat

"Clarke Sondermann’s axe-use spans a wide range of genres, from Sea & Cake and Minus the Bear jazziness to an almost Slint-like angularity" - Cassette Gods

"Somewhat sad but ultimately uplifting blend of indie pop, some folk and healthy handful of synths." - Poule D'Or

"dream pop...that’ll put your mind and mood at ease." - Abduction Radiation

"Rhythmic, hypnotic, a journey into the interior. Lyrics & melodies bubble into the subconscious...Antumbra Pull is a space folk journey of the highest order." - One Minute Cassette Reviews
