    A remarkable record that simply demands your attention.

    Blissful, elegant records like this do not come about by chance.

    A truly beguiling debut.

    One of the most infectious collections of pop songs written on an electric guitar this year.

    What you’re left with is the impression of an artist with her receptors fully open, resulting in a debut reaching far more emotional touch points than you’d expect.

    Ripe with subtle nuance, Fading Lines is an exquisite debut. Seemingly simple yet running far deeper than cursory listens reveal, it’s a record that sticks with you long after the closing notes of the aptly titled ‘White Fuzz’ fade out.

    It's impressive she even had enough time to record an album, let alone one as accomplished as Fading Lines. [#361, p.107]

    She proves adept at so many styles within her chosen niche on Fading Lines that her next album could go in any of four or five directions and sound very good.

    There's a winning mix of mist and muscle on this debut. [Jul 2016, p.69]

    Fading Lines does leave much to be desired in its implementation, though, but there are multiple hints here that suggest that this is only the beginning for de Graaf.
  11. Jun 2, 2016
    Enticing, if inconsistent, this seems to be an album that de Graaf had dreamed of making, building on the pretty, prosaic folk-pop of her self-titled EP in 2013.
