“The duo, consisting of Amber Renee & Graham Marsh, deliver a passionate Portishead-esquevocal performance and a lush instrumental production that help drive the evocative lyrics right through your soul. The songs intense instrumental builds carry along a burning resolve that makes this track feel so empowering by the end.”
“CLAVVS mix killer pop hooks with dance/hip-hop rhythms, Renee’s sublime vocals, and subtle electronics…”No Saviors” is a song that delivers immediately on impact, drawing you into its singular world.”
“Exemplifying a world-aware consciousness as well as an appreciation of world music, the Brooklyn duo construct a vibrant soundscape for listeners to lean into and get lost in.“”“Echo”, a new song that finds the two-piece attempting to let go of the past. “Your face is haunting my mind/ And even when I dream/ You find your way into my dreaming life,” Renee sings. Her laments are backed by a swirling production that evokes the feeling of being swept up in a whirlwind of wistfulness.”
