    A spacious, yet measured and surprisingly inspirational, midtempo dirge.

    Crunching rhythms, subtle brass, and tunes as intoxicating as a blood transfusion from Pete Doherty combine as he tells the tale of a disastrous year full of rat infestations, romantic strife and weight loss.

    Whilst not wholly unique,Golden Suits is undeniably individual--a wholehearted, open but personal space--built from imagination, memories, stories: what he knows and who he knows.
  4. 60
    Golden Suits’ debut brims with great ingredients, but leaves us more excited about Nicolaus’ next effort.

    With contributions from one third of Grizzly Bear, lilting vocals and arpeggiated guitar chords are gracefully manifest. [Sep 2013, p.96]

    Truth is, it usually works the other way; next to this rich, peculiar music, Nicolaus' reticence to reveal too much leaves Golden Suits' story feeling a little unfinished.

    This'll be one to cozy up with come autumn. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.102]
