"As always it is the combination of beauty and terror that Leah captures so elegantly, the tension and drifting atmosphere that floats about the listener as if they themselves were part of a chorus line from a gothic musical. Cold, deep, poignant and reflective but also gorgeous, ephemeral and eloquent. It’s what she does."

"Wow. You know those moments of absolute clarity that hit you like a twenty ton land-train, the ones that allow you to glimpse, just for a nano-second, the innermost workings of the universe, granting you a moment of absolute calm and peace of mind? Yeah, well listening to Dropping Like Flies allows you to experience that moment over and over again, as it washes through ever atom of your being and whispers gloriously nihilistic Nick Cave and PJ Harvey inspired sweet nothings in your ear while gently stroking and probing at your cerebellum and lulling you into a state of musically induced joy."

"The songs are strong and do what songs are meant to do: draw you in, intrigue you, instil a sense of movement so you have the sense you’ll be taken somewhere and maybe even be brought back again afterwards."
