    Luluc's attention to detail and careful songcraft are apparent yet the music slides comfortably by, revealing its true depth with repeated listens.

    Luluc has indie credentials to spare, but all that really matters is that this music is impossibly delicate and deeply beautiful. [No. 112, p.59]
  3. 80
    This quaint duo has created a bold and unapologetic record that stands out as the best of its kind for quite some time.

    Restrained but emotionally compelling songs. [Sep 2014, p.93]

    It might occasionally makes for heavy listening, but Passerby skilfully turns quiet melancholy and dignified sadness into a thing of subtle beauty.

    Passerby is an acoustic record of great subtlety and warmth, so much that it overcomes the chick-lit preciousness of Randell's lyrics. [Sep 2014, p.75]

    The result is a strictly passerby album: one that is heard and then quickly forgotten.
