"Gorgeous pop melodies, though covered in swathes of noise and fuzz, blur the boundaries between accessibility and experimental form." - Vandals on the Wall
"Essential, well-executed stuff, especially for fans of shoegaze, noise rock, and perhaps a bit of Godflesh." - Pinoytuner.com
"[Love in Athens] blurs the line between lo-fi rock, shoegaze and electronica. Where exactly that line is, I’m not sure, and I don’t think Francis is terribly concerned either." - Sounds Better With Reverb

Chnl.One - Vocals and lyrics on Manresa by the Sea
Your ache can color itself in nervous shades of hollow light; wretching against the walls your flesh raised to protect you from the things you said you wanted.
Flowers won’t blossom from the first cut but the envelope makes you feel less alone.
It’s only skin and moments spent drunk in the touch of another; fleeting, and in warm blurs that pulse as if to say, “I won’t return.”
There is nothing. There is nothing to miss. I didn’t feel a thing.
Track Name: Pull Me Under, Tide Me Over
To the hulls of ships abandoned, I’ll just be passing through. With no sails, no bearing, and no anchor, I’m just as lost as you.
Lighthouses in full view of tectonic shifts, they disintegrate; as you once did in me. Eroding with the coasts of grief, the tide has claimed us; to be swept away by the mourning sea.
Pull me under. I’m just tired of going nowhere.
Tide me over. I’m just tired of going nowhere.
Track Name: Ouroboreal
Track Name: Manresa by the Sea (Feat. Chnl.One)
You can stumble, but can you get back up? It's the pain, the feelings where I get stuck; disconnected and distraught, laughing at a joke no one told. I only smile or cry when I can't feel anything at all.
Brought down to my knees by this insanity, I hope you're only as miserable as you want to be. You shrug and smile so unhappily. I hope you're only as miserable as you want to be.
