"neon demons feels like a soundtrack to a great film I’ve never seen. Equal parts ethereal and assertive, the music invites and engages the listener. It always impresses me when instrumental music outside of jazz can hold my attention for that long, but neon demons has enticing synth sounds and progressions. Even at it’s most abrasive, the album doesn’t alienate the listener. This choice always presents itself to an experimental musician, but solarein made something very palatable and enjoyable here."

"this masterfully created album that blends both the organic ambient textures, and synthetic electronic music; it’s truly a testament to solarein’s skill as a musician. The track is littered with little details that rewards the listener for paying attention. Like any great work of art–beauty is in the subtle–in the minor brushstroke that can separate the amateur from the master. Truly this album is something to be listened to over and over again. solarein for capturing the existential angst of the digital era, undeniably deserves my recc."
"This was probably the most difficult pick for Singled Out. Not because the track isn't worthy of belonging here, but because its creator Solarein aka Vru Patel released two cinematic albums – 'Neon Demons' as Solarein, and 'Psychosis' as Vru Patel – which both warrant a mention. The ambient, experimental electronic release 'Neon Demons' contains surreal elements of vaporwave, whereas 'Psychosis', released via Dhaka-based label Akaliko Records, reveals the producer's tendencies for darkwave. Point is, you should listen to both the albums, and listen to them at a single stretch to really appreciate them."
