What people are saying about Doldrums:

“Doldrums has specialized in conjuring the unexpected.”  [“HOTFOOT” / Track Review] – Pitchfork

“Using samplers and DJ gear in place of guitars and drums, the expanded Doldrums have come up with a hyper-detailed prog-dance-pop odyssey” FACT Magazine

“An album that is full of conflict, using samplers to create a blend of discordant noises with industrial drums and occasionally uplifting vocals. Music fit for Montreal’s late-night warehouse parties.”CBC

“Nestled in these adrenalized, highly evolved songs are bright pop hooks, showing that other artists could compete with Doldrums, but they wouldn’t be able to keep up.” DIY

“The song hits hard, its skewed metropolitan pulse giving way to aggro percussive bass bursts that remind me of LCD Soundsystem’s “Losing My Edge.”  [“HOTFOOT” Track Review]  – Stereogum

”Top notch.” [“Loops” / Track Review] – NME

“A techno infused banger” [“Loops” /Track Review] – Clash
