    Dancing is certainly Nancy Elizabeth’s best work to date.

    The words "necessity", "mother" and "invention" spring happily to mind. [Jul 2013, p.92]

    This is wonderful stuff, haunting neo-folk ballads of a gold standard with undulating saw synths punctuating throughout.

    This is space-age folk music from an elaborate sound sculptor. [Jul 2013, p.75]

    Her lyrics see human experience both on an intimate and an epic scale: such expansiveness is well complemented by her music, even if the dancefloor only exists within her home. [May 2013, p.56]

    Whether she's actually poverty-stricken or just pretending, the 29-year-old has put together a set of songs so delicate it has all the impact of a flutter of nymph wings.

    While it would be remiss to question an artist’s chosen working methods, perhaps if Elizabeth hadn’t been quite so fiercely independent in its recording, and had had to compete with the usual unwanted distractions of the outside world, then Dancing might not have been just an impressively accomplished album, but a more striking, perhaps even outright essential one.
