General comments:

Alice Gun's sound is dark alternative rock. She's got a strong voice and songwriting. While I really like the "The Swimmer" single, I still haven't been drawn to buy the full album despite multiple listens to available samples. I can't explain why. Still, I recommend her work to fans of dark pop/rock. She's very intriguing, and I'll definitely be keeping an ear open for more of her work. (Neile)

Comments:

I really enjoy this single. It's only two versions of two songs, "The Swimmer" and "Minty Fresh", but the versions are quite different. The sound is dark and powerful, and has intriguing edges. (Neile)
