‘waif-like post-Amy Winehouse charisma and powerful voice dealing out a thirty minute set of great classic pop songs. The band are razor tight with ska chops entwining with the perfect tumbling sixties choruses and big melodies that dominate the songs making them all sound like perfect hits’
– Louder than War
‘Sweet soft vocals with hard hitting lyricism that really makes you sit up and listen…One to watch.’
