“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.”
[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!”
“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.”
[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.”
"An exceptional piece of work off of a peerless label."
[Phil Vickery - In-Tune, BCFM]
"From Bearsuit Records, one of the most amazing experimental albums in musical history. Sparkling glitter, textural candy mountains and supernova-sized balls of rainbow-bubble gum bursting all over the place!"
"[Bees In My Feet] Noisy but really quite subtle and beautiful. A wonderful, wonderful sound!"

“‘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.”
[Tom Byrne - Primal Radio]
“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.”
“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.”
[Evan Carr - The Art Of Bleep, PBSFM]
