“Just stunning…a name to be listening out for” – Sarah Gosling, BBC Introducing

“The minimal and at times whispered vocals function as an instrument in their own right and provide as much colour and depth as the emotive strings. There’s a feel of Ludovico Einaudi about Tarka, but it paints a much broader canvas both sonically and emotionally.” – AnalogueTrash.com review of the track “Tarka”.
