about

An EP co-written by Lykanthea and Savage Sister.

"'sundrowned' subdues the burning star into seas of calm. Hear the ambient undertow of earth's forgotten depths on 'Glass Orchids,' 'Naked,' 'Orphan Wild,' the new age deep ends of 'Diving.'" - Impose

"'sundrowned' achieves that rare blend of genuine and genius artistry... Brace yourselves for 15 minutes of song crafting at its pinnacle best." - WordKrapht

"'sundrowned' dwells in ambient sonic depths; somewhere in a world betwixt awake and asleep. 'Naked's echoes of ghostly voices perhaps epitomizes the record's entirety which is vocally and lyrically hard to place or decipher, but something just to nestle into without too much examination." - Little Indie Blogs

"'sundrowned,' a collab between Savage Sister and Lykanthea is everything it ought to be. It aims at the right target and hits dead-center bullseye. This is the kind of music Memoryhouse might have made if they hadn't gotten signed; perfect dream pop shoegaze. The EP is a clear '10,' and one of the best we're likely to hear this year." - anothercountyheard

"As a classically trained vocalist in the (traditional Indian) style of Carnatic music, there was always going to be something of the exotic in the songcraft of Lykanthea. But as a recent collaboration with fellow Chicago dream poppers, Savage Sister, shows - in this case, the exotic stretches to the otherwordly. Spread across four tracks, new EP 'sundrowned' is a melting pot of rich atmospherics and delicate electronica, showcasing the instrumental alchemy of co-writer Michael Tenzer." - Nugazer

"I get the feeling that 'sundrowned' is [Lykanthea and Savage Sister's] ticket to bigger things." - Sphere Music

Lykanthea has also been interviewed live on Radio One Chicago and received nods from Largehearted Boy, Independent Music News, Sakona Webzine, SoundsXP, Skope, Deli Chicago, Electric Sound of Joy, The Global Voice, Raised by Gypsies and Fragile or Possibly Extinct.
