“The clip brilliantly stages the song, via images notably produced in CGI, where we can see a spaceship storming Space while discovering planets, meteor showers and mysterious stars” – Rolling Stone France

“A funk-tinged production with steel pan samples flood the ears, followed by the charismatic spit of D Smoke.” – Wonderland Magazine
“Walk the Line,” a song about music’s impulsive power, swells with violin stabs and lugubrious trumpets.” – Pitchfork
“There is a real sense of filmic pacing on the album [Dusty Rainbow From The Dark], leading up to the final dénouement and each single track plays its role superbly.” – Pop Matters
“‘Le Saout’ has a je ne sais quoi for sonics.” – XLR8R

However, with the reworked version of the song, we see Wax Tailor drawing back into the electronic realm, with a spattering of new genres thrown in to refresh the sound.
