"Long before Bibio, Tuung or Minotaur Shock came on the scene, of the term folktronica was coined, Utramarine pioneered a highly original mixture of pastoral guitar plucking and machine-make rhythms. Their debut album, Folk, was decades ahead of its time, blending the synthetic and organic in a way that was way ahead of the curve... It was with their following records that Ultramarine really broke through, but Folk is a hidden gem which connects decades and various musical scenes in a way managed by few other artists since. Possessed of a unique atmosphere, Folk is a classic that deserves to be rediscovered - or discovered for the first time, by a generation open to its genre-melding sensibility" (Electronic Sound, 10/2020)
