On their latest EP, Reighnbeau producer Bryce Hample teams up with collaborators Colleen Johnson (Flying Circles, Silver Shadows) and Madeline Johnston (Midwife, Sister Grotto) to create an album that skirts the edges of IDM, dream pop, and electro-folk. Six off-kilter love songs—sparkling pieces of art-pop music for voice, electronics, acoustic guitar, and autoharp.
"Silky smooth smash-hits aimed through a prism, splashing an aural collage of colour and texture in every direction." - Various Small Flames
" Not content to merely have their work fit in with other visionary seminal works by Grimes, Sylvan Esso, & Múm, Reighnbeau’s 'Slight EP' shows the band kicking their composition & mixing skills up a few notches, toeing the line between entrancing and mania-inducing." - Cassette Gods
"Slight shifts and morphs like sand in a desert, flowing through dream pop, folk, glitch, and synth soundscapes...six surreal tracks that explore love, loss, and the hypnotic nature of rhythm." - Thrdcoast
"Reighnbeau’s a dense configuration, an opaque cloud of electrofolk goodness that shifts its shape from moment to moment. Hample’s production is top notch – the doors of my expectations have completely been blown of their hinges...this is straight digital candy, sugar rushes of electronics and pop flourishes that remain stuck to your ear canals long after the songs end." - Tabs Out
"A shimmering collaboration...an ambiguous and intriguing mosaic of dream pop and electro-folk, which simultaneously skirts the edges of IDM...[a] masterful EP." - We Are Unseen
"They fly through the night air searching for the perfect dance beat, soft and stimulating. I could listen to this all day." - K Records
"The way thunder looks if it were to be drawn on a map above the continents." - Small Albums

I've only grown to love this album more and more since it dropped a couple years ago. Listening to this album feels comparable to wearing a heavy wool coat during a midnight walk through the windy and bitter autumn cold. James Loves You
