“…Just because it’s folky doesn’t mean it’s lighthearted. Simms isn’t a disenchanted pessimist, but there’s a sombre, moody vibe behind the album, even when the tempo steps it up a notch and Ilia Nicoll breaks out the violin. Feel free to dance along to songs like I Wonder or my favourite, Leave This World Alone, but perhaps in a darkened place where you have space to think rather than simply release in a feel good oblivion.”
