I have come to Bryde's music late..three years late on this album! But...loved it the moment I heard it. Such energy...and that wonderful voice. If you want music that reaches into your heart and drags it out both gently and furiously...this is it! wulfie512
Four super songs from Sarah; all beautifully structured, sung and produced. There's a real brooding intensity to the messages built into these tracks – feelings that aren't quickly forgotten. Michael Reilly
The entire EP is strong. Seriously impressed by this band who were an accidental discovery one day when I was letting Soundcloud do its thing. I've had the entire EP on repeat countless times last year. Stargazer is probably going to be one of my most played tracks this year, too! jellysheep
