LA’s prints_ (yes, underscore included) are practically demanding to look like a potentially malicious line of code with that name and heavily processed artwork. It makes sense then that their two previous singles, 2012′s “Wish” and “Cut”, are heavily glitchy future pop affairs, striking somewhere between being Purity Ring‘s younger sibling and a shrine dedicated to the late Crystal Castles. The most unsettling factor here though is singer Carol Rhyu, also known by dream pop project White Blush. Normally the kind of airy-sounding singer fit for night driving mixtapes, Rhyu sounds like a trapped spirit moping through the halls in a seedy club on “Ghosts”. – Sunset in the Rearview

“Los Angeles-based Carol Rhyu, aka White Blush’s reverb-drenched vocals and dreamy synths have a certain intoxication to them, something that makes her music so addictive and emotional. The aptly-titled “Ether” follows this even more so than usual, creating an even more haunting mood, reminiscing at points the best shoegaze bands. It’s one for headphones and hiding under the covers.” – No Fear Of Pop

“The LA artist Carol Rhyu composes musical in spacial, visual, and well noted cinematic ways, that we detailed in last year’s write up for “Neptune“. And even then, we never quite could have imagined the electric etched otherside of this world that Rhyu has made with Loves Park, something even beyond the Lynch/Badalamenti/Cruise love, and profound appreciation for Gary Wilson.” – Impose Magazine
