    Noveller is music not only for the open-minded, but for the inquisitive. It’s a joyous, enthralling sound that she makes, and it seems to be getting more enticing with each release.

    As Arrow progresses, we get a clearer sense of how she's beginning to understand what she seeks. And though we're never exactly sure what it is, her music leads us to a full conclusion.

    The effects-heavy guitar constructions of Arrow are the most emotionally intense Noveller material from Lipstate yet, making it easily one of her most expressive and fully formed statements to date.

    These are rather beautiful ambient sound worlds, however she created them, full of dread, anticipation, joy and peace. Perhaps it’s best if you can’t see the wires and knobs and plugs that make them possible.

    There is much calm and introspective about Arrow; sounds appear to ripple and echo outward while sustained tones change pitch in the background.

    She manages to make her chosen instrument sound like just about everything it isn't, yet the sense of sonic cohesion and unique identity she possesses never dwindles. [Jul 2020, p.33]
