about

“Between the whispered minimalism of the XX and the glitchy percussion and abrasive electronica that characterised Portishead’s recent work…Donnelly is ever the focal point and she manages a charming vulnerability a la Bjork…a performer who is naturally captivating” – The Line Of Best Fit

“The inevitable comparisons with Massive Attack and Cocteau Twins….as well as Portishead, Radiohead (no really, one track does – “Seagull’s Nex”) and Sia with a side-order of Beth Orton. Yep, pretty good company, though ultimately they sound like Laki Mera and that’s rare for a band to sound different enough to stand out” – allgigs.co.uk

“Drawing heavily from trip-hop and ambient electronica influences, Laki Mera craft carefully ordered and simultaneously shambolic soundscapes…layered and looped to produce something truly arresting… Just as you end a trip to the fairground both vaguely shaken and exhilarated, Clutter is a whirlwind listen that leaves you wanting more.” 8/10, The 405

“A 
fine piece of work… Not since the Blue Nile’s first recording has such well crafted music appeared
from a Scottish band, Laura Donnelly’s voice as affecting as Paul Buchanan’s.
With Portishead reborn and the ambience of trip-hop being reassessed, the time
may be just right for Laki Mera to make the leap to more widespread acclaim” – The Herald

“stunning ambient electronica conjures shapes and textures occasionally hinted at by Zero 7 but not fully heard and appreciated since latter day Eno or ambient Japense god, Ryuichi Sakamoto” – tentracks.co.uk

“a gorgeous collection of ambient panorama and cinematic soundscapes over the top of which Laura’s ethereal enigmatic vocals soar and swoon” – pennyblack music.co.uk
