“Her sound is as sweet and lovely as one would expect with charming beats and dulcet vocals. The sound recalls the perfection of mid-to-late '90s indie pop but updates it with a slight electronica twist. In other words the sound is inarguably nostalgic but never pointlessly so.”
“A mix of pop and fuzzy type songs.. loud but not too loud, fun but not too silly. What some would call classic Slumberland sounds from the late 90s."
