“Her own debut is a wonder, full of longing and melody” – MOJO
“One of the British folk discoveries of the year” – The Guardian
“Georgia is finding her own distinct voice” – Q Magazine
“Lush Welsh pastorals and other odes to spring”
– Neil Spencer, The Guardian
“Atmospheric spirituality runs through the album underpinned with natural world imagery, poetic lyrics and subtle soundscapes. Ruth’s harp playing is augmented by wafts of strings, guitars, drums, sax and violin but none impinges on the album’s persuasive fragility” – MOJO Magazine
“Utterly transfixing… beautifully arranged, played and recorded”
– Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales
“An unobtrusive delight where the alternately lush and sparse conjured textures beguile the attentive listener in their careful response to Georgia’s ever-intriguing lyrical vision.” – David Kidman, Folk Radio UK
“Fans of Vashti Bunyan, the quieter moments of Talk Talk and gentle indie-pop will find succour here.” – Jude Rogers, tinyletter.com
