“…Frontman Evan van Ramshorst transports the listener on a journey that feels both freeing, like an eagle soaring through the clouds, but at the same time caught in the grasp of something more sinister. An earnest and raw songwriter, Ramshorst grabs you by your ears but you can fill the tug on your heart just as strong.” – GigCity
“As a songwriter, Evan van Ramshorst has integrated a chilling low-fi vibe to compliment solid structure and catchy melodic lines.

“Where the Wind Blows” (Magnet and The Magnettes) took me on a trip through ambient soundscapes and chilling lyricism that I won’t soon forget. What a pure, thought-provoking album.” – Josh Sahunta
