"The eight songs borrow boldly and confidently from the past, fusing together traditions even as they’re liberally sprinkled with modern fashions. It’s almost impossible not to say that Ptarmigan are clearly building their own kind of magic." - Graypoint Owl
PRAISE FOR O ZEPHYR
"On “O Zephyr”, Ptarmigan embark on an odyssey all their own, inviting listeners to join them along the way. This song is intense, thoughtful, and complex; it stimulates our senses, questions our ideas and beliefs, and takes on a journey through time and space... a promising single from a refreshingly unique band." - Atwood Magazine
"Ptarmigan is a real progressive band is the best tradition" - Audio Fuzz
FOR SPIRIT WAKES
"[Spirit Wakes] begins with intricate fingerpicking on an acoustic guitar, gradually building its lush, layered sound with the incorporation of warm vocals, angelic harmonies and gently rolling percussion. Dramatic riffs crash in and out, adding some drama to the sweet, melodic tune. It serves as an introduction to the band's upcoming album, which is expected out in early 2016." - Exclaim!
"Despite its ghostly title, ‘Spirit Wakes’ is a very full song. Guitars dazzle and voices dance as PTARMIGAN charge ahead with a powerful purpose to rouse you from slumber and reinvigorate your own spirit." - Grayowl Point
