    Fresh, detailed and packed with surprises, every element of There Is No Elsewhere is carefully mixed. Their work--playfully branded "baroque-pop folktronica neo-classical something-or-other"--surprises and delights in equal measure.

    Their latest warms the electronic pot with quirky pastoralism--brass, melodica, clattering-teacup percussion and tangible emotional warmth. [Oct 2018, p.94]

    Thematically and in delivery There Is No Elsewhere is an album from a band revelling in their identity and in being true to themselves through a sound already highly recognisable as only theirs and at once formidable and fragile, beautiful and fascinating.

    Haiku Salut use instruments as a tool to tell stories, and the band’s emotional gravitas is symptomatic of how this type of music can triumph against all the odds.

    Haiku Salut deepen and widen their electro-pastoral sound on this mostly sublime third album. [Nov 2018, p.30]

    Album number three takes Anna Meredith-style neoclassical and jumbles it with a woozy mix of Broadcast, Hounds of Love and glockenspiel gamelan. [Oct 2018, p.89]
