It’s always great to see brilliant artists take risks and push themselves… Maz O’Connor pulls off the shift with aplomb.’ At The Barrier

‘It is the title track that is the album’s most astonishing moment. Quiet piano textures and a lonely, reflective voice. An echoey lament, as startling as the quietly tender moments on Hannah Peel’s ‘Awake But Always Dreaming’… It is quite breathtaking!’ OUTSIDE LEFT

‘The Cumbrian-raised singer’s hypnotic melodies are accompanied by intelligent lyrics and delivered with an emotional delicacy that speaks volumes for her talent.’ Here Comes the Song ☀️

‘No matter what you take from this album, it’s a vital listen. I hope it opens more doors for O’Connor who has now proven over the course of four albums to be a songwriter and performer to be reckoned with.’ For Folk’s Sake
