CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit

She possesses a rare aptitude for packing in the same amount of emotional clarity into songs that last five minutes, as well as songs that barely meet the minute mark. It is the sign of an artist whose being is overflowing - completely bursting with life.

Beats Per Minute

Read has opened up immensely on both an emotional and musical level, resulting in her most resonant body of work yet.

Pitchfork

Exclaim!

Hannah is taken straight from the mind of a wallflower, apprehensive and always low-key.

Under The Radar

Read peels back the events of her life to reveal open-hearted ruminations on loneliness, long distances, chance encounters, and missed connections. All suffused with the appropriate amount of emotional depth and a warmly fuzzed lo-fi delivery.

PopMatters

I just kind of felt a connection to this and some sort of nostalgia hearing this, even though it’s my first time. The vocals are beautiful, the instrumentation is simple but extremely effective, and the entire time I just feel like floating through the galaxy.

Like Big Thief mixed with Elvis Depressedly, this has that bedsit lo-fi indie folk spirit - it gets a pass.

Sure, it's super basic, but there's a lot I love about this. Super warm, emotionally-resonant song-writing. It sounds like a low-key Hop Along which is not a bad thing.
