"Steering north through a sound emulsion by way of layer after layer of texture, Navigateur creates more than atmospheric soundscapes posing as songs. The seemingly separate components continue to meld together, in a western expansion nonetheless, bridging any divide with an affinity for soul . . . and soul music. This fondness for R&B and the now forgotten former occupants of chart pop, substitutes what many in the genre fill with an entanglement, a sycophantic outpouring for a single decade and the analog machines that made the sounds so magnetizing (do I really need to say that I'm referring to the 80s?).
There is reverence for analog sound and 80s inspiration permeating through Navigateur's music. A sun-drenched warped sensibility flows through these songs making them feel nearly tangible, projecting a veneer that will send you on introspective trips, all the while, making your head bob."
