ALBUM REVIEWS //

8/10 : “Crowe makes her dark nights of the soul feel hypnotic, carving out territory between Bats for Lashes and Nick Cave’s Skeleton Key. Bleak but vivid, there’s a power to its precision” – EXCLAIM Magazine

4.5/5 – EDITORS PICK : “one of the most gorgeous and sorrowful records to have come out this year” – SPILL Magazine

“For listeners willing to dive deep into Crowe’s world, the album functions well as a forced entry into darkness and unnamable despair” – SLUG Magazine

TALLIES share their new video for “Easy Enough” directed by Christopher Mills (Interpol, Leonard Cohen, Modest Mouse) via CLASH MAGAZINE.

“Dreamy guitar pop with that Canadian sensibility, with influences ranging from The Pastels to The Sundays, Orange Juice, and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.” – CLASH MAGAZINE
