about

haq - "nocturnals" (BS020 - 2013)

“Nocturnals is one of those rare albums that mixes extreme experimentation with pop beauty and actually works. A gorgeous album, and one whose timing could not be better. This is a perfect spring record. Some sun, some rain, some flowering, some cold spells. A must listen.”
Simon Tucker
Louder than War

“Gorgeous debut of the collaborative album from Haq between Tokyo-based dynamic duo N-qia by adorable singer Nozomi and programmer Takma and Edinburgh-based multifarious musician Harold Nono. Original and highly enjoyable. Have a listen!”
Vito Camarretta
Chain D.L.K.

“Haq have hatched the simply immaculate ’nocturnal’. with ghost like delight this twelve track set is tenderly and sublimely seduced to a landscape that’s glitch glowed and immersed in an after lights out cool sophistication. Imagine a heavenly blissed out this mortal coil being reframed by a lo-fi glitch geared Goldfrapp. Disturbingly beautiful all said.”
Mark Barton
The Sunday Experience

“On my final run through it seemed that every song had some unique and wonderful moments but I also came to the conclusion that Haq could have produced a damn near perfect pop record but instead of choosing the easy and obvious path in a song, they repeatedly take the least expected route. It’s easy to love this album for the little slice of hazy summer sun that it is.”
Kim Monaghan
Sitting Now

“‘Nocturnals’ é um disco surpreendente não haja dúvida. Incansável nessa missão, atinge também o objectivo de nos hipnotizar e de nos fazer ficar com os olhos muito abertos como se estivéssemos perante uma estranha e caótica revelação. Fascinante.”
Projecto Cellophane

“Experimental electronica that’s compelling, odd, and oddly compelling. ‘Nocturnals’ is an arresting record that will stutter and shiver its way into the psyche, whether you want it to or not.”
Christopher Nosnibor
Whisperinandhollerin

“Combining the spaced-out dreaminess of My Bloody Valentine with the more intelligent corners of experimental electronica, Friends of experimental sounds will be delighted by this unusual yet still very accessible foray into the unexplored regions beyond what is commonly accepted as pop music.”
