"Her performance exemplifies how music can be the most intimate experience on the planet. Dekena’s vocals are rich and intoxicating, where you hang onto every word she sings and wish she was next to you. The electronic arrangements are familiar, aided by the stirring production that together creates a haunting soundscape. Dazzlingly breathtaking introduction to a hidden gem." - The Revue (Canadian Music Blog)
