General comments:

Her press says:
Borrowed beats from broken toys, broken hearts, lost things found again Bethany has emerged with a subtle yet provocative take on electronic pop. 'Wildly extreme even bizarre with a very inward, incredibly personal voice.' (David Harrington; Kronos Quartet).
Umm, yes. Sort of lounge-y with soft, dreamy-but-edgy vocals and heavy percussion. (Neile)

Crooning, whispery, moody half-talking layered vocals over interesting and odd percussion. Only five tracks but still somehow impressive. Just on the verge of being experimental, but not toppling over. Very interesting. (Neile)
