The first album featuring original music and public domain spoken word as well as dreamy compositions and circus keyboards, acoustic guitars and looped noises.
Praise for the first Bloodybones album, Death And Other Wonders:
"...remains ambiguous throughout, only giving peeks into its human traits. Like a buried book of memories, it holds a ghostly nostalgia and inviting eeriness."
"Bloodybones sound is underpinned by a solid idea of how to grasp the ears of an audience without giving too much away and keep them interested. It’s also hard to pinpoint exactly where Bloodybones stands on the genre chart, deeming purely as ‘alt-folk’ would be doing the artist a disservice – there’s something else here that’s hard to pin down."
"Bloodybones is an original project with a collection of bright, yet brooding ideas, set against a historical and filmic backdrop. Although it’s a darker and more melancholic listen, ‘Death and Other Wonders’ is an album very much alive with purpose and intriguing sounds."
