Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

I reviewed Andi Starr’s previous album and ep and found her to be a compelling artist. She continues making sweet music on this new album, she has a lovely voice and it comes across strongly on the opening title track.

The brilliant “Save Yourself” is vaguely reminiscent of Aimee Mann’s pop precision.

“Martin Eden/under the Lighthouse” is melancholy, Starr’s vocals balanced against a lively backdrop.

“Beneath the Bridge” is fragile yet holds together thanks to the luminescent singing and the piano bits. Starr’s made another richly rewarding album.
