  1. As curious a party piece that is, it rather overshadows their phenomenal way with gorgeous melodies and heart-melting harmonies.
  2. Uncut

    They have bell-clear voices, and a spooky ability to envince naivety and world-weariness in the same breath. [Feb 2010, p.88]
  3. Q Magazine
    80
    Led by the strident vocals of the younger Klara, it is, however, the strength and surprising maturity of the pair's songwriting that makes The Big Black And The Blue such an impressive first effort, not least on the gorgeous Ghost Town. [Feb 2010, p. 105]
  4. Their alt.folk stylings are ideal for unwinding to at the end of a long day as it calms and soothes the senses.
  5. The result is a collection of remarkably accomplished songs. With age, their early lyrical maturity can only blossom.
  6. These 11 tracks wisely elect not to outstay their welcome, ensuring that repeat experiences are enjoyable, if not markedly memorable.
