Press Quotes

“Without any exaggeration, Filip Míšek has moved up to the next level. ‘The Bear is Sleeping Now’ is like a scenery of the four seasons, when in a swift sequence, you live through a bright spring, a warm summer, the gloom of autumn and the cold of winter. All in thousands of variations of every spin of these ten compositions. The beauty appears gradually, but as soon as you grab it, you won’t be able to get this debut out of your ears.” ― MUSICSERVER
