    There are some dazzling moments here.

    Depersonalisation may still be moody and at times downright dour, but at the same time it’s bursting with likeable, accessible traits.

    Depersonalisation transforms their potential into a beautifully bummed-out fever dream of a debut.

    Nite Fields' debut album is a far grittier prospect than the neon-lit, 1980s-flavoured spelling of their name suggests, thanks largely to its predominant mood of nocturnal gloom. [Apr 2015, p.81]

    A band that glides effortlessly when it might benefit from a bit of friction. A little ugliness might break up these pristine gate-reverbed vistas and make them seem not just stylish and cool but real.

    For those who grew up worshipping at the altar of such ephemeral sounds, a record like Depersonalisation is a welcome bit of gloom, even if it ultimately feels like a record you probably already own.

    Depersonalisation is a record that certainly wears more familiar musical influences on its sleeve but also shows the potential for forging a more personalized sound.

    Downcast, tasteful and frequently quite beautiful, Depersonalization borrows from sonics generated three decades ago, but with a lack of self-consciousness that makes it all sound fresh and new.

    The signs are there, but they just haven’t come together in a way that makes significant impact--at least not yet.

    It’s not that there’s a shortage of good ideas on Depersonalisation; it’s just that, in its attempts to sound lo-fi and to shroud everything in darkness, a fair few of those ideas have been smothered.
