"Davies is making music like nobody else at the moment" - NME
"A voice that sounds like a lake of black honey. " - METRO

"A leftfield hit in the making"
- DAN CAIRNS, THE SUNDAY TIMES
"A phenomenal talent!"
- HUW STEPHENS
"Possessed of a rare sense of resilience and wonder that recalls Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell and Joanna Newsome, Davies’ delicately contrived but richly evocative material is worth seeking out." - DAILY MIRROR
"Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful... genius in fact!" - ROB DA BANK, Radio 1
"Ethereal, brooding and untameabley crucial listening." - MUSIC WEEK
"Let's leave lachrymal, glitchy bellends Jamie xx, Woon and James Blake to their pissy-eyed cyber wailing - Welsh pianist, singer, and published PhD student Catherine AD is way smarter than them.
Atop string backing, she captures the moment after the bawling ends - when natural opiates flood the brain and much more complex emotions and sensations ensue...like an Anglo-Celtic Tori Amos discovering the joys of Michael Nyman. Add to this a surprisingly stunning, pared to the bone version of Lady Gaga's 'Telephone' and you've got a mini-album that's really worth crying about - 8/10." - NME
