Produced by Will Yip (Circa SurviveCitizenNothing)Light We Made is Balance and Composure’s most expansive and challenging release to date, as the band favours smoother, sonic textures and dreamy synth moments, over the roaring guitars and powerful drums that defined their previous works. Few acts are able to veer this sharply from their original sound and continue to placate their fan base; however Balance and Composure have pulled the seemingly impossible off.

Moody, sinister and understated, the likes of ‘Spinning’, ‘For A Walk’ and the insistent ‘Call It Losing Touch’ feel like drowning and floating all at once,” – Rock Sound.
