Acclaim for Joshua Moriarty:
“Romantica is a return to the real. A wonderful piece and a musician’s record that transports you to a warm, pre-21st century world.” Dhani Harrison (songwriter/producer)
“Josh is a romantic. There are bass lines and harmonised guitars, a plush organ, mellotrons and slow grooves, it feels like Nabokov and Stereolab entwined in some sort of strange love affair. It starts with innocence and ends with a crush.” Francois Tetaz (producer/composer)
