Four years since the last Neil's Children release, founder members John Linger and Brandon Jacobs decamped to southern France to create what they claim to be their best work to date. 

The new album 'Dimly Lit' delves deeper into the personal music tastes of the group, pulling together a sound that owes much to their love of psychedelic music past and present, whilst retaining the urgency of their previous work. 

Throughout the album there are aural fragments of the sophisticated French pop melodies of Gainsbourg's late 1960s/early 1970s output, alongside the experimentation of groups such as Broadcast, Stereolab and Silver Apples. 

The 11 tracks featured on the album draw you through the NC created world of lysergic pop, pushing your ears and senses to the limit while ensuring you stay grounded with beautiful melody. 

Now including 2 unrealised tracks "Aimless Focus" and "As Time Revolves (In Dub)" coming along with the digital download of the album.

Drowned in Sound – 9/10

"…have spawned a genuinely wonderful record… an engaging, whip-smart and beautifully textured production. Welcome back Neils Children."
Loud & Quiet – 8/10

"Beautiful, cinematic psychedelia. A definite contender for album of the year."
Louder Than War

"…musical magpies… mixing and matching with verve and intelligence. Well worth checking out."
Shindig! Magazine

" L’album est d’une cohérence indéniable, sans réelle fausse note, semblant définitivement fermer la porte à leur musicalité d’antan. Rite de passage ou chant du cygne ? "
Sound of – 4/5

" This is a record full of solid songs with hooks everywhere – a worthy successor to Broadcast’s earlier work perhaps? "
The active listener blog

" On (re)découvre à chaque nouvelle écoute une réalisation riche et fourmillante de détails, de petites trouvailles d’arrangements superbes, de sons inattendus et de tous ces petits riens qui font toute l’orfèvrerie complexes des plus beaux disques. "
