"The second album from Port Chalmers, Dunedin band Death and the Maiden creates a shadowy world within a world; populated by melancholy melodic synth waves, dreamy reverb washed guitars and vocals that celebrate the excruciating beauty and crushing weight of everyday life. 

The band - Lucinda King (vocals, Bass), Hope Robertson (guitar, drums, vocals) and Danny Brady (synths, programming) - create a beautiful depth of sound, nestled between the programmed beats, synth arpeggios, hypnotic guitars and a pulsing bass. 

Continuing from their eponymous debut, Wisteria conjures dreams of love, decay. Sounding at times wispy and ethereal, Wisteria also has passages of driving, pulsing cacophony; breathing life into the dreams of the dead."
