  1. Gonzo (circus) review

    “On his third album he lets a fresh wind blow through his sound. Sometimes the wind blows a little harder when the guitars are hit hard. The echoing melodies and the dull voice make you experience the nine tracks as a kind of intoxication, with the highlight being ‘Crossroads'”. “Cloud Formations” is therefore a cleverly chosen title. Singh builds his guitar-driven songs like a cloud: foggy because the raw edge is never far away, but also floating in the air because it always has a dreamy undertone”. New review by the great music magazina Gonzo (circus) Read the full review in Dutch here.

  2. Kulturní magazín UNI review

    “The deliberate lo-fi tone of the guitar lines and vocal will lead Haleiwa to freakfolk waters once, while massive analog electronics will bring a distinctive gust of eighty inspiration to Singh’s third solo album” “…the follower of the Styrofoam legacy or the Acher brothers’ series (from Lali Puna to Ms. John Soda) sounds more than promising”. New Cloud Formations review by Czech Kulturní Magazín UNI. Read the full review in Czech here.

  3. Groove magazin

    “The retro sound of Mikko Singh aka Haleiwa from Stockholm is really pretty stale and yet so pleasantly contemporary. Cloud Formation (Morr) is a super-likeable blend of very late and definitely not minimalistic Dark Wave and Shoegaze”. Nice Cloud Formations review by Groove Magazin.

  5. Rockerilla review

    “Suitably presented as a shoegaze beach album. Cloud Formations confirms the oxymoron in a gallery of Balearic postcards, which also maintains the anchoring in an oblique pop lexicon very evident, interpreted with dreamy lightness and taste of experimentation. SUNBATHING POP-WAVE”. Great review by ROCKERILLA!

  7. Album of the week

    “…he delights us with kraut and a kind of lo-fi that makes you relax and listen”. “He tried a lot: punk or indie, he did not shy away from anything, but now he gets stuck in a smoky-melancholic lo-fi sound with elements of kraut. That’s how Cloud Formations is designed, with little vocals, but many sounds make the listener drift off into a cloudscape into which one can dive and sink. Psychedelic and intimate is his third album, which has convinced our music editor this week. Surf the clouds with Mikko Singh and enjoy the melancholy!”.
