Kurt Weill phase..." [Lesley Sly, Panorama Ansett magazine]
Inga's ethereal voice rasps from the stereo,
you know this journey will be something special. One part
fragile and tortured, Urchin is an effortless wave of textures
creating a strange and uncomfortable state. It has a vision
heady and undefinable. The depth and beauty of Inga's emotions
resonates in each track, and you're squirming in your seat."

"I love this CD,
and it was even made right here in Australia. If you're
looking for a comparison, think Bristol meets Bjork, but
this music really does stand out as stylistically unique.
It is a CD that's full of surprises. At one point the music
cuts out abruptly and then re-starts in a different key.
I thought: 'Wow- nice! Was that meant to happen, or is my
CD player f--ked?' And I just love what she did with the
last track!(not telling you...its another surprise). But
it's representative of the whole CD. Urchin is a f--ked
up, extremely original and dazzling piece of music that
outshines the latest offerings from Bristol."
