“The Darkness” by contrast, and probably as expected, is a far more sombre affair. It even borders on the sinister occasionally with the lines “The darkness is coming in again,” and “It’s getting blacker still” really reflecting this. But don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s all doom and gloom as BRADY’s voice is something to make you feel uplifted. Her voice occasionally hits notes that send shivers down the spine, her line “I couldn’t sleep in my own bed” being one of the notable times. - Sean Noone - U&I Music Magazine

"A very rich folk sound that has a true wisp rising out of it." Unsigned and Independent Music magazine February Issue

"There is a parting inside the lyrics that keeps it all steady as her voice hits all the right notes." Unsigned and Independent Magazine - Scene and Heard Review Febuary 2013 (see pic below)

"A new song.. Sunflowers comes across as bright and broody. The contrast in the two does lend it a powerful presence. In particular when it comes to the ornate aspects here, they combine to showcase something highly imaginative." Unsigned and Independent Magazine- Scene and Heard Review February 2013
