Sunset Images' sound swims in a dark sea of intense experimentation with layers of frequential noise, deafening fuzz, pounding percussion and massive swathes of reverberation, all mixed into a compound of shoegaze, kraut and psych that will take you into a journey to travel to the other side of your mind...

"...Listening to the eponymous album by Mexico City’s Sunset Images is a breath of fresh air. Yes, they dabble in certain elements that will place them among many bands within the current post-rock pantheon, but the band lives for its details. There’s plenty of volume swells and drama in their material, as well as an askew method of writing and executing their music; shades of odd instruments decorate certain turns in their arrangements and they manage to play at tempos many of their peers might not attempt. No wonder they namecheck contemporary composer Arvo Pärt, post punk/ambient icon Brian Eno and jazz, and colossus Miles Davis among their influences alongside Tortoise and The Cinematic Orchestra." -Marcos Hassan, Remezcla.

"El propósito del disco es claro: viajar. Llevarnos lejos de este aquí-ahora y dar vueltas como viejo LP o como auténtico derviche hasta alcanzar el éxtasis; Anábasis. Las referencias al éxodo y peregrinaje por regiones sutiles más allá del ajetreo citadino no se dejan esperar. Un Zaratustra ermitaño que en lo alto de la montaña dialoga con el Sol de la Aurora; un alma esclavizada que pide a gritos zafarse de la muñeca el grillete del tiempo profano que oprime y devora y pide en cambio salir hacia el encuentro de la naturaleza y lo salvaje; bajo el resguardo del hilo conductor en el laberinto de la cotidianidad, uno puede salir a la luz y encontrar junto a la madre tierra, la añorada libertad…" -Marco López Sánchez, Letras Explicitas.
