2009 has seen the relase of William Gardiner’s debut Onliving EP, which has been decribed by critics as “absolutely stunning…a bright beacon of things to come” (Mess+Noise), “absolutely a beautiful work…very delicate and way too short” (Vital Weekly) and “an excellent collection…a strong sense of grand sonic movement” (Cyclic Defrost).
