URCHIN REVIEWS

"It's moody, sometimes swoonish,
trance music with echoes of Bjork, Dead Can Dance, Golden Palominos, and Marianne Faithfull's Kurt Weill phase..." [Lesley Sly, Panorama Ansett magazine]

"As 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."
[Christine Butler, Mixdown magazine]


"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."
[Pete Rivett- Carnac, Single Gun Theory]
