“Dungeonesse’s sound is poised somewhere between the past and present. Their take on the poppier side of modern R&B would sound at home on a playlist with Jessie Ware and Solange, but they’re also trying to reanimate a very specific mid-90s vibe— think Jock Jams for a private party rather than a whole bleacher-rocking stadium. They embrace their influences wholeheartedly, enough to bring the past vividly into the present moment.” - Pitchfork’s review of Dungeonesse
