Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Sarina Simoom’s debut album is a rare and beautiful thing.

Singer Jenna Herbst’s nimble voice scales unbelievable heights easily.

The music is both elegiac and uplifting. This is an album that the 4AD label might have put out in the eighties.
It would fit perfectly with the Cocteau Twins best works from that era. The band’s sound is less ethereal and more earthy than the Cocteaus though.

The peaceful nature of the music is frequently undercut by darker strains.

This is remarkable debut.
