On their debut album Revolving Maze, Involved fuse the psychedelic sounds of ’70s kosmische with ’80s electronic and more modern ambient styles, creating evocative, cinematic music. However, rather than being revisionist, the duo curate fresh sounds from a musical palette that spans 40 years. Lush synth tones are deployed with an innate sense of melody, leading the listener through widescreen narratives of enviable scope. With Revolving Maze, the title says it all: this is complex, engrossing music that transforms with each spin.
"There are clearly more ideas in one Involved title than in certain whole discographies from largely overestimated artists from that genre...a masterpiece, right from the first album." - Indie Rock Mag
“pointed, focused, and atmospherically perfect... such ethereal, textured atmospheres make you never want to leave: 90/100” – , The Power of Metal
"[REVOLVING MAZE] is one of the more successful ’70s/’80s retro-infused ambient electronica albums that also hold a true sense of a Sci-Fi adventure...darkness and light beautifully collide." - Igloo Magazine
"Let it be the experimental side or the sonic engagement part, the end result is simultaneously monumental and cozy. The sound pertain a glistering beauty as well as a broad facet of deep, daydream conundrum where keyboards and electronics are deployed in the most sensual and precise way to effectively output maximum effect. How far can one artist and their craftsmanship drag you? Personally I’d say sky is the limit here, and this is what Involved proves as they slowly unfold their sublime work. All notes unveiled itself in perfection, It’s divine and I must add, I for one I’m getting ready for another spin on this one. CHECK IT OUT." - thesirenssound
