Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Vancouver band Girl Nobody are onto something. Singer Marta Jaciubek has a delicious, creamy Björkian voice that suits the band’s brand of pop well.

“Smile and Beware” is a delightful pop nugget that recalls the Sundays. The loungey vibe of “Come and Find me” is very nice.

“Why am I Alone” is a melancholy song that includes the words “capitalist pig” but it’s sung in such dulcet tones that it hardly sound political.

“Hello It’s me” resembles Jill Tracy in its cabaret mood. This is a charming and versatile debut.
