""Pretty Damn Good""

... popular modern meets the pseudo 'classical' as two (or more) musical forms are carefully and professionally intertwined into one conjoined art-form that straddles musical cultures and popular themes and sets new standards for others to match. Seriously good stuff... - Toxic Pete


"Sophisticated Schmooze"

From the sophisticated statue-esque schmooze of the Cocteau Twins like glacial chime driven love notes as heard on the near perfect 'Coils' with its esoteric Heather Duby like lilts to the frisky Stereolab meets St Etienne spectral la la pop of the effervescently powder puff thrill of 'dipping toes' - Autorotation flirt curvaceously occupying aural planes softly awash with dreamily thoughtful smouldering shoegaze accents. - Loosing Today


"Wow"

Wow!

(after playing out track Citoyenne on his "Introducing" show)

"One of the most original tracks of the year" (before playing the said track) - Tom Robinson - BBC 6


"Prickly Beats"

Sellman's smooth but dynamic vocal performance recalls the likes of Saint Etienne's Sarah Craknell and Kate Bush, clinching (Autorotation's) more organic, song-based side. However, prickly sounds and tough beats throw enough curves to nix any Everything but the Girl comparisons. - Montreal Mirror


"Keep Digging"

(The band) has clearly cottoned onto something that will keep getting better the deeper they dig. - Exclaim!


"Shining"

The (band) builds a gleaming electro-pop edifice so seductive you have to listen closely to Robyn Sellman's shining vocals to know that it's political. - The Globe and Mail


"Best band?"

The best band on the planet that you're still not listening to... - Loveless Music Group

Bio

The idea that became Autorotation was born in Toronto some years ago when multi-instrumentalists/producers Robyn Sellman and Igor Olejar met through their work in ambient electronica, IDM, dreampop, and film music.

Fast forward to 2007, they escaped the restrictive trade laws of the USA and moved to London in search of like-minded musicians and a more tour-permitting market.

Robyn and Igor are now joined by Phil Stutely on the bass, and Kaloian Bukov on the drums. Experimenting and blurring the distinctions between groove, noise, orchestration and vocalisation they transform their live shows into audio-visual spectacles with large projection screens, complex electronic set-ups and captivating performances. But, they can and do, unplug, simplify and play their acoustic sets in a middle of a field.
