"The songs invite the listener on an inner journey, as when the tracks Oliveira and Gentle Nudging are painted in esoteric tones that engulf the audience within the music and make it an almost magical experience." - Indie Italia

The alternative mystique of Kingdom of Revolution brings us back to the historical or topical underbelly of the writing, a stripped-back and sultry contemplation provoking deeper interest in these stories and images.” - Stereo Stickman

"You will be confronted with an absolute acoustic art that moves between indie, psychedelic of the Pink Floyd brand with elements of lo-fi and not only stands for a musical talent - which characterized by a homogeneous and interesting songwriting or arrangement, but also by a certain versatility." - She Wolf Magazin

Croix's second sound montage release through Tachisme Records (Bocca di leone being the first) leans slightly closer to convention, focusing less on incidental sound and more on progressive electronica. Originally recorded in 2016 under indeterminist conditions, it has been pieced together (both conceptually and structurally) over time. It is here, this metamorphic sojourn through the invention of time.

"With the number of albums he has to his name, Croix is obviously on a quest to push music to its limits, to jump over sonic demarkations, to fashion musical stews and let them pool and percolate into new flavours and unexpected tastes." - Dancing About Architecture

Splendour + Misery

Deckard Croix

With a markedly artificial aesthetic and elegiac lyricism, S+M provokes shades of season and sensibility. Lounged in reverberating dress, the cull of an innermost evening.

"Even when he is just armed with his trusty acoustic guitar, Deckard is always able to create a very immersive soundscape, with powerful and evocative sounds that seem a lot richer and more articulate than what you would expect from a solo songwriter." - The Bandcamp Diaries

"Bocca Di Leone is a sonically dense and kaleidoscopic album, which feels
quite down-to-earth...the kind of music that combines beautifully executed instrumental parts with extremely thoughtful conceptual art.

French Diseases of the Soul

Deckard Croix

French Diseases of the Soul is a three-part stellar nursery of dark frigidity. Bookended by two sprawling ambient excursions, the innermost track is spare art rock in the psychedelic songwriter vein. Sister album of Noncommunication of the Cephalopods.

Singles

A Tenderness of Wolves

Deckard Croix

This latest single (anticipatory of the upcoming psychedelic rock album, Cosmospine), is Croix's usual blend of angular structures and acid western guitar coiled with sinuous lyrics. Perfidious convention!
