Possessed of immense depth, it's full of texture and quality, amounting to a genuine beauty that is born of fine songwriting and attention to detail. Each of the nine tracks brings a new focus, 'Slowmotion' a whirling merry-go-round that contrasts with the enchanting 'Same As It Ever Was', a song that pulses on a teetering, unforgettable hook. Allow these deathlike lullabies to take you on a trip." - Steve Beebee 'Total Guitar' magazine "Miss the ice-cold metal of the Sisters Of Mercy and The Mission? Your next best bet is Adoration. Epic soundscapes recall the best of the 80s goth scene along with more than a touch of The Cure.
Plangent guitars and big choruses are all over Sleepwalking: you can almost smell the dry ice." - Joel McIver What other people think: "I love this kind of sophisticated darkish pop, so much so that were I not fortunate enough to be getting a complimentary copy, I'd be buying it!" - Julianne Regan (All About Eve) "Perfectly designed for it's genre and wonderfully produced, these are songs to set sail to by night. Admirers of The Cure, Cocteau Twins & The Mission would be foolish to miss this record." - Miles Hunt (The Wonder Stuff) "Rich, dark, textural and emotive." - Roger O'Donnell (formerly of The Cure) Adoration followed their debut album with a live performance at Dingwalls, introducing new members as part of the live line up. They were joined by Simon Rippin on drums (Nefilim/NFD), Rob Leydon (Voices Of Masada) and Chris Milden (Lahannya/NFD) on guitars. Now a strong 6 piece line up, they spent the next couple of years playing live and appeared at both UK and European festivals supporting bands such as The Cranes, Chameleons Vox, The Birthday Massacre and Faith & The Muse, also headlining their own gig at the Camden Underworld. They released a download only single called 'Sense' in 2011, and split in 2012, playing their last ever gig on April 21st at the O2 Islington Academy. Read more on Last.fm.
