"...//orangenoise’s trademark sound ensured that at the very least, their uniqueness would placate interested ears. Marrying Ride with The Smashing Pumpkins and My Bloody Valentine with Tool, //orangenoise make music that extends beyond a static understanding of shoegaze – it is born of psychedelia as much as it is born of noise; it is born of texture and post-rock as much as it is born out of a need to write good rock songs.

A Journey to the Heart of Matter however has //orangenoise stepping patently away from their work on Veracious. This time around there seems to be a greater focus on songwriting than on noise and soundscapes, though that’s not to say that those wonderful ideas have been ignored. Where Veracious was more in love with its psychedelia, A Journey to the Heart of Matter is more enamoured with the structure of the songs themselves and the ability to restrain them. ‘Getaway’ is this process working at its best – sonically the song seems at the precipice of losing itself in a vortex of cacophony, but the song’s structure is consistently present, reigning in every attempt to break away."
