    There are moments when the sweeping melodies verge on the grandiose, but they successfully walk that difficult line between obnoxiously extroverted and too restrained.

    Despite the mad proliferation of comparable contemporaries, The Deer Tracks have balanced out, and in so doing added context to their oeuvre whilst avoiding sounding derivative.

    The Archer Part 3 is the work of a band fascinated by sound and the possibilities of contrasts. Here are two musicians who never seem to go for the easy, comfortable option.

    Even though the record is part of a series, the Swedish duo--comprised of David Lehnberg and Elin Lindfors--travel through a full electronic arc within this album alone.

    The music is as icy and snow-covered as from whence it came. [No. 95, p.53]

    The Archer Trilogy were exercises in electronic indie that were sparsely fragile (pt. 1, mostly) or verging on Europop (much of Pt. 2). The final installment manages to combine both and is all the better for it. [Jul 2013, p.101]

    The sound is a little too familiar, and--like a lot of Scandinavian music makers--the Deer Tracks are more style than substance.
