“A voice you would follow straight into Hades.”
“Her music sounds as somber as ever here, and her distant air remains one of the most absolutely haunting things you’re likely to find anywhere near indie rock.” – Pitchfork.
“She has a voice that, in mythological times, could have lured men to their deaths at sea, an intoxicating soprano drenched in gauzy reverb that hits bell-clear heights, lingers, and tapers off like rings of smoke.” The Boston Globe.
