Sage Willinsky - CT Indie
"In the youtube generation, so many “artists” put little thought into their output. It's comforting that there are bands like Farewood, who not only lay down beautiful musical tracks, but do so in order to bring readers to a richly developed fictional world of struggles and progress through human, or human-like interactions."
Kev W - The Sound of Confusion
"It's the sound of 'Wings Of Gold' that will lead people to it and the constant background hum will be something shoegazers everywhere will be well acquainted with, a continuous wall of gentle fuzz and ghostly vocals."
Eric R. Danton - Listen, Damnit
“Wings of Gold” is more oblique, with vocals wrapped in gauzy layers of reverb and surrounded by dark, urgent guitars, swirling atmospheric textures and propulsive rhythms.
Chip McCabe - CT.Com
"Their sound really is an amalgamation of all the best that 90's indie rock/"alternative" had to offer. It's a little dark, a little dangerous. You get equal parts uplifted and contemplative when you sit down and really give it a good listen. The fact that Farewood's vocals also alternate almost equally between male and female make me think a little about Mazzy Star too at certain points on the album, but Farewood are much less shoegazey and more progressive in their songwriting. "

"The liner notes in Wings of Gold begin with an excerpt of a short story by Lou Lorenzo, establishing the concept of multi-dimensional worlds co-existing and interacting as one, instead of relegating it to the cold black and white stance of fact or fiction. By exploring the fairy tales, folklore, mythology, and spirituality of man, Farewood allows us to discover how much truth lies in the legends that have been traditionally told and retold through the ages. Love, life’s lessons, and the morality of man have never been, nor shall ever be, one dimensional."
"From Meriden, USA, comes the next big thing to listen to while skinny dipping at 3am, drinking elderflower cordial and finding your cosmic zen. Guitars twang, voices give you a neck rub, and you can sit back and contemplate the news that they totally reckon there's loads of water on Mars, man."
