Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International, 11th June 2013
It is not deep music, but it has a freshness and lively response that is always a delight.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2013
The Scottish girls are excellently prepared...keeping diction clean and crisp without impeding the heady forward momentum. They're alive, too, to the wit and wiliness of Martin Hall's lyrics, dividing accurately in the harmony sections without sacrificing the technical stability of their singing.
