"The debut EP from Manchester's Rose And The Diamond Hand presents four atmospheric songs which have already become live favourites. The glacial and gothic tinged downtempo sound of the band has evoked comparisons to both Portishead and Siouxsie & The Banshees. Rose's soulful, melancholic vocals and enigmatic lyrics are delivered over a striking and minimalist musical backdrop. Hypnotic bass and drum rhythms are intertwined with subtle experimental electronic textures to create an evocative mood. The songs on the EP include the yearning, catchy shimmer of "Icicle" and the cyclic, pulsing soul of "Universe Is Woman". Also included is "Dominate", a fierce, attitude packed cut, and "Extended", a haunting, otherworldly number. "
