‘An astonishingly fresh début from a promising new talent. Let’s see what Katy can do next.’
‘Her natural dulcet tones are stepped in black humour – a real talent.’
‘Delicate songs, simple songs, clever songs, rewarding songs, songs that float, songs that pull you into their warm web…. rather horny. A fine fine album indeed.’
