Additional Acclaim For Broken Twin:
“One of the most exquisite and haunting albums you'll hear all year” - Drowned In Sound
“There’s something about the unaffected clarity of Broken Twin that rings true straight away: the tremor in her proud voice, sure as an arrow in contrast to the lonely pedal steel caws that arc throughout the song, as she sings of a break-up shivering down lonely spines, stark in the moon’s reflection, over a humble, clanky piano line.” - Pitchfork
"Her music is sparse, expansive and centered around delicate, affecting vocals.(...) It captures the sense of Nordic loneliness through a fragile piano line and softened vocal harmonies.” - Paste
"Broken Twin is the most arrestingly beautiful songwriter we’ve heard in aeons." - NME
"Piano, violin and subtle loops form a minimalist soundscape of songs full of longing(...) One is reminded of the great Hope Sandoval." - Rolling Stone
“Her music is filled with delicate hooks, and exhibits a sweet/dark dichotomy." - Under The Radar
I find it hard not to consider Broken Twin as one of the most gifted young songwriters I’ve heard in a long time." - The Line Of Best Fit
