As soon as I heard the first track play, I was hooked, and the album has been part of my daily play list ever since. The world, and life in general, has been feeling pretty heavy lately (I’m guessing at least a few of you can relate!), but that weight just melts away when this music starts flowing.”

Their music has the sparkle of pop, an edge of call-bullshit politics, the verve of danceable soft rock, and a whole lot going on in each track.”

“Unicorn” is a beautifully melodic track in the spirits of indie-folk. Its haunting vocals fill the audio to the brim, inviting listeners into a cozy, quaint, and powerful world it has crafted. The duo of Helen Austin and Paul Otten demand attention and trust in perfect unison, a combination utterly contradicting, but perfectly understood in their delivery. Think The Lumineers or Mumford and Sons if either band was made up of your very best friends: that’s the sound and warmth that Austin and Otten are in full control of. While making an intriguing political track, they have succeeded in fostering a sound of contentment and familiarity.”

"it’s the harmonies that hit you first: alternately intimate and resonant, perfectly fitted yet also pulling at each other, whether in unison or blossoming as if in brilliant light."
