Posted by Universal Music Publishing on 10 August 2015

Brimming with classic funk-infused melodies as if heard through a mirage of electronics, Dornik’s self-titled debut album is something like a film full of palm tree-fringed montages; dream sequences bleed into love scenes, with lyricism that weaves everyday observation into far-off fantasy.
