    It works to the strengths of each, allowing Negro and Barwick their own spaces to shine while sculpting an overall, engrossing ambience around the pair.

    A pleasant escape that certainly deserves a good pair of headphones.

    The musicians' sensibilities combine to create a bliss pop which doesn't simply evoke the spirit of summer, but allow it to bleed into every chord. [Oct 2012, p.64]

    Believe You Me comes off as a collaboration between two dyed-in-the-wool daydreamers, finding both harmony and intriguing incongruity in their respective visions.

    Barwuick's reliably beautiful voice sits at the back of the mix, observing the shimmering sonic haze below her. [Sep 2012, p.81]

    This is much more of an abstract, "experimental" affair than a pop one, as friendly and approachable as it is--only a fraction of the selections could properly be described as songs, and even those tend to spiral off down unexpected textural avenues.

    Believe You me is something of an art-house installation. [Oct 2012, p.86]
