…it’s one of the best things I’ve heard in a while. It’s how tempered the release is, the restraint, it gets me every time. – The 405
Participant’s second EP, Content, is a delicious offering crammed full of dark threnodies and electro infused hymns… A triumph. – Hotpress Magazine

…showing off an atmospheric indie style that is anchored by Tiernan’s delicate voice. – Nialler9
His new EP, Content, has just been released and delves deeper into intimate atmosphere than ever before, Tiernan’s gentle vocal lapping at the tracks throughout. – The Irish Times
This is an EP that transports its listener to another world; slow sweeps of odd electronic sounds juddering behind pleasingly soft vocals that seem to hover over proceedings like a dream. – Goldenplec
Would make out to this. – Noisey
