    Mirror's In The Sky's bewitching yet minimal folktronica [is] dominated by the most rudimentary of beats and weird little keyboards. [Apr 2014, p.109]

    If you’re hankering for a bit of masochistic pop, Mirrors The Sky will soothe the craving. And then destroy you.

    Throughout Mirrors the Sky, Lyla Foy's warm and comforting voice remains the focus.

    As "Feather Tongue" definitively establishes, it's Foy's voice--hushed and mellow enough for this synth-pop era, but also stirring and dexterous enough to transcend it—that can flourish in and even transform any sonic environment or genre simulacrum.

    It may be a little too restrained in places, but this is a quietly confident debut. [Apr 2014, p.74]

    By the time you get to No Secrets halfway through, you may be wanting something a little different. But for a late-night album, Mirrors The Sky does the trick. [15 Mar 2014, p.54]

    Cranes is strong on ‘Honeymoon’ and ‘Easy’, but there’s also nigh-on-sprightly, post-Jessie Ware trip-pop on ‘I Only’ and ‘Feather Tongue’. It's just not enough, though, to struggle above years of similarly tasteful, slight efforts.
