About

"...the kind of electronica that bends the conventional idea of the singer/songwriter, making it all wobbly and pliant." - fd2d.com

"MENDER is drummer Ashley West-Mullen in disguise and how good is this! He’s been staying up late for weeks pouring over his mixing desk and effects units to produce guitar loops, subtle glitchy electronic bits and haunting vocals and turned up with this highly satisfying offering." - sloucher.org

"Experimental beats and looped instruments form the heart of Mender's sound, where glitches and repetition become quirks to swoon over and be enchanted by." - onebeat.squarespace.com

Mender ash west-mullen, nottingham, Britain (UK)
