Excerpts (translated from the French):

 

SOMETIMES: ...“We couldn’t talk about 2018 without mentioning Bipolar Explorer. The New York dreampop/shoegaze trio continue to deliver - celestial and spell-bounding compositions alternating between spoken word and emotional flights of lyricism, astounding us with beauty. Brilliant, luminous and cathartic. Puts shoegaze back into a state of grace.”

TIL MORNING: “Eleven months have thus passed after their moving double album, “Sometimes In Dreams”. And yet this has not been enough for Bipolar Explorer to not come back and enchant us yet again for this end of the year, this time with a more conceptual album titled “Til Morning Is Nigh: A Dream Of Christmas”. Bipolar Explorer explores (no pun intended) the Christmas tradition with their luminous and enchanting dreampop/shoegaze through tracks still as minimalist but also dreamlike with among others "Bethlehem", "Oh That We Were There" and "Mille Anges Divins" and with solemn compositions such as "Gabriel", "Midwinter", as well as "Angel Frequency". Til Morning is Nigh is quite a bold tale, divided into 23 musical chapters. If you’re looking for Christmas gift ideas, Bipolar Explorer is more than an option."
