NME: ‘The three-piece band’s sound tickles the same parts as Nick Cave, PJ Harvey or – most aptly – Jeff Buckley, thanks to the transcendent vocals of frontwoman Anna van Rij.’
The Line Of Best Fit: ‘The Visual are a trio from Amsterdam who make textural and affecting music which snaps between the epic and the angular. Fronted by the husky-voiced Anna van Rij, their best songs find a place when the ambience is tuned up a notch with synthetic beats and loops. Cinematic is an understatement.’
Gigwise: ‘Anna van Rij’s voice, cool and evanescent as the morning dew, veers between melancholy lethargy and emotionally wrought upper-register bends. Partner in crime Timon Persoon does his ‘voodoo soundman’ bit on keys, crafting an proper three-dimensional sound landscape at the tender locus of soundtrack and songwriting.’
3VOOR12: ‘Op het debuutalbum Moments of Being maken we zo kennis met de volgroeide versie van de band: duistere, zelfverzekerde dreampop die onder je huid kruipt en je niet meer loslaat tot je nummertje acht van het album hebt afgeluisterd.’
Europavox: ‘The Visual, the project of singer songwriter Anna van Rij, is one of the best, slow-burn sultry pop that’s by turns lush, intricate, and melancholic.’
