Ani Glass is a former member of The Pipettes and Genie Queen and this is her debut full-length solo album, representing a journey around her hometown of Cardiff. It has taken four years for Ani to learn the craft of creating and producing an electronic urban soundscape.

The rhythm loops are mechanical and sparse keyboards find themselves shimmering over the top. The pace throughout the collection draws parallels with the German masters of electronic pop, Kraftwerk. Without actual visuals, it still succeeds in creating a different mental image with each track. Ani sings the bulk of the album in Welsh and that adds a layer to the atmosphere resulting in a very neat pop album.
