In the Light is one of the most touching and beautiful Irish tracks of this or any other year. This début is one of the most deliciously sweet hues of bitter you could possibly taste.
Eamon Sweeney / day&night / Irish Independent

Officially our favourite Irish pop band. The execution is perfect, a crystal clear combination of twinkling instruments and beautifully balanced vocals. S.A.D. is a record of real substance.
Phil Udel / State Magazine

genuinely swoonsome folk-pop melodies...the girl/boy vocal interplay of songwriters Bennie Reilly and Davey Moor sounds natural at every juncture...A cosy blanket of sounds for all seasons
Lauren Murphy / The Ticket

bursting with clever, engaging melodies and decorated with delicate vocal harmonies...a superb record.
Eamonn Seoige / AU Magazine

winsome, breathy...full of delicious close harmonies and hooks you can hang your coat on
