Press Quotes

“Every period needs its own poets. Those dreaming, broody people that sensitively dive into their own and other people’s souls and are able to give shape to even those emotions that lie hidden in the deep recesses of our mind.” ― MUSICSERVER

“From the viewpoint of sound, the recording is several lengths further than its predecessor. I attribute this to the fact that the production was taken care of by J.P. Muchow, and I―no matter how much I am looking around―cannot see a different band that would suit his work more than MANON MEURT. They hit the bull’s eye when they chose him, and it gave rise to a symbiosis that bears its fruits.” ― METALOPOLIS

“With their eponymous EP from 2014, the then relatively young band from Rakovník caused quite the stir. The typical need to pigeonhole everything put them in the box with the ‘shoegaze’ label on it. It seems they wanted to get out of this box and prove to the world that their ambitions and talent are limitless. Four years later, we’ve been given the epic debut MMXVIII. Also, thanks to the production of Jan P. Muchov, they managed to shape their own inward wildness and melancholy into a diamond that harmoniously moves between pop, post-rock, intimacy and eruptions of opulent guitar parts and tells fantastic stories from fictional lands in an entirely unique way and without any pathos.” ― HEADLINER
