    Language is quite an impressive debut. Zulu Winter masterfully juxtapose adventurous and sexualized production with [mostly] touching, sorrowful songs. In other words, it's something you can dance to in public and reflect on in private. That's not an easy balance to maintain, but Zulu Winter does it well here.

    This is eccentric indie pop with a slightly off-kilt flavour.

    Language is a sturdy and well-produced collection which, given the right exposure, sounds like the sort of thing that could be very large indeed.

    For a band that spent a year in solitude writing and recording Language, Zulu Winter sound an awful lot like everyone else out there.

    Language can feel tepid and assuring at the same time. [Jun 2012, p.151]

    The melancholic croon of frontman Will Daunt, a man who sounds as if he's caressing a broken heart rather than nursing it, give these ever-so-now songs an old-world charisma. [Jun 2012, p.115]

    Doused in interminable glimmering drones and wimpers, spending 45 minutes in its company feels like being smothered inside a snowglobe.
