    Glam folk never sounded such a good idea. [Mar 2015, p.105]

    Vamala breaks no musical boundaries, but the melody of a song such as Sophia has the indelibility of the Bee Gees--indeed, Michael Chapman’s voice has a frailty reminiscent of Robin Gibb.
  3. Feb 27, 2015
    Champs deliver a handful of cinematic anthems, including "Desire" and "The Balfron Tower," which, much like the duo's island home, are at once breezy and haunting.

    It suggest that a future as pullover wearing folkies is theirs for the taking if they fancied it. [Mar 2015, p.94]
