Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Joy Ike has a pleasant voice and a style that recalls Vienna Teng on this lovely album.

Sweeter has some stunning piano parts and a honeyed vocal that really stands out.

Like a Picture sees Ike singing softly to a gorgeous melody that unfolds delicately. It’s one of the best songs here, but they are all good.

How She Floats is another lovely song, with prominent piano and a soulful, utterly wondrous vocal. It reminds me of Regina Spektor a little.

The title song sees Ike reach for a poignant moment and stay there in a way that’s very appealing.

It’s a stunning album all told.
