Early reviews for 'The Ghost in Daylight' (album released April 30th)

"Possibly Britain's most under-rated singer/songwriter" **** Telegraph

"Warp's unsung genius delivers (a) mellow masterpiece... evocative of Nick Drake's understated English melancholia and the lush, moody atmospherics of late-70's Brian Eno. An exquisite, unexpected gem" **** Q

"Stunning" - ***** Artrocker

"A special album" **** Stool Pigeon

"Seriously wonderful" Lauren Laverne (6Music)

"The Ghost in Daylight is a wondrous thing" Quietus

"The Ghost in Daylight is a memory-haunted journey through the dead voices and deep narratives of England's lost - broadside ballads culled from earth and air" Mojo
