"Sunshine is an eerie and ominous introduction to the intriguing Fassine...
Sarah Palmer’s vocals are translucent against the dramatic atmosphere of cryptic synths and severe bass...
The minimalist and abyss-like production is reminiscent of Trent Reznor and UNKLE..."
"...What Fassine truly specialise in is crafting cinematic soundscapes that complement moody electronica with ethereal vocals"
GRAFFITI PUNCTUATED INTERVIEW
"Perfect for an hour spent brooding in front of a rain-splattered window at dusk."
"Though Fassine’s debut album has moments of almost supernatural beauty, it’s also shot through with the sinister…"
"A compelling mixture of soft, spiraling vocals and dark beats.
They pull you down to nothingness then fling you up with cinematic explosions."
"An epic display of power in saw tooth synths and bruising percussion."
KALTBLUT - BERLIN
"Scenes of a bleak and beautiful place, it's wavering, dense layers,
and use of the sonic spectrum serve as a sustained, sobering assault on the senses."
"It's a perfect video to watch by candlelight with its movie-like qualities.
It exudes loneliness, as the protagonist is lit by a single light in a dark,
isolated room almost as if she's being held captive...
Although we're still a while off from the release of London quartet Fassine's debut album Dialecktik, which should be out in 2016, we're already super excited for it if it's even half as strong as its lead single 'Sunshine'."
"Visual elements are a vital part of what Fassine create. They write in mind of a noir landscape,
taking the listener through a perfectly subtle darkness, imagined to a sound that connects with the
listener in more than just the audible sense."
"Ones to watch."
"As chaos reigns supreme over your ears it feels like the right time to let the London-based
industrialists sound track a revolution that will see the streets set ablaze."

Q MAGAZINE - KELBY : TRACK OF THE DAY
"Outspoken and self sufficient their hardworking and innovative attitude towards their art places them light-years above their competition."
GIG SOUP INTERVIEW
"Headlong… like an angel inhabiting a human form at a crossroads in an arid, rural setting."
"Have you heard of Fassine? They’re a three-piece from London, and they make striking atmospheric pop music."
ONEONONE PLAYLIST FEATURE
"Fassine take dance music to a new place… This is the music of late night solitude, but also of the dawn breaking...
This is cinematic pop music distilled to its very essence and all the better for it."
DANCING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE
"The track is a darkened blend of cold melancholy and anxious vocals, falling somewhere between Portishead and Moby."
"An industrial feel that creates a huge sense of unease against the beautifully hushed tones of the vocals."
"A Song that redfine’s the light and the darkness with a jazzy touch and dystopian romance.
The new video 'Sunshine' will be led to a colossal experience of internal storms."
"Doomsday disco, darker than a House of Cards box set."
"Set against a shifty wall of static and battery acid-splashed beats,
'Spine' is a slow-burner that leaves a trail of smoke and ash in its wake."
SELF-TITLED MAGAZINE "SPINE" BY ROBERT KOCH FT. FASSINE
"An Unsettling Vision Of Your Own Making… This is an assured and uncompromising piece of work from a seriously talented quartet."
"Fassine look to have made one of the albums of 2016."
PENNY BLACK MUSIC
"First track “Headlong” instantly had me hooked with its beauty."
"Headlong," finds the listener suspended in a bottomless chamber, surrounded by slow synth, syncopated percussion and airy vox."
