A fitting follow-up to 2015's Loon Garden and its exploration of the zeal behind love, Stay True soundtracks Kratos Himself's odyssey from bitter betrayal to the forging of new independence and self love. Carefully narrating his fall from grace to his transformative ascension, Kratos Himself playfully winds through footpaths lined with warm Rhodes piano chords, gentle jazz brushes, and off-kilter percussive rudiments in his most ambitious and full bodied release to-date.

"Kratos himself is on par with Shigeto and Bonobo, but unlike them he sneaks his own vocals into the mix, giving his ethereal downtempo productions a surreal touch..."
- Indie Current

“Something you can listen to while you take that first sip of tea or coffee as you sit back in your desk chair preparing for a great day."

"Kratos Himself offers the possibility to clear your ears and your head”
- Walmer Convenience
