CRITIC REVIEWS

Drowned in Sound

Boasting the talents and a depth of spirit of an artist twice her age, I Predict A Graceful Expulsion is a majestic powerhouse of a career starter.

Beats Per Minute

All this might not catch you on your first few listens; her lyrics are the kind that seep in after repeated listens.

Pitchfork

What elevates I Predict a Graceful Expulsion above pure comfort food, however, is how it subtly tugs against the big, major-network-drama payoff for which it feels custom-built. 

70
No Ripcord

What we have here is the molding of a true songwriter instead of a fleeting star.

60
The 405

At times, I Predict A Graceful Expulsion can be slightly one-paced and one-trick, but it's a trick attractive and earnest enough to warrant repeated listens.

60
NME

If the focus on ‘I Predict A Graceful Expulsion’ is sharp then its scope is overly broad, focusing in on vague sentiments that leave you fond, but never in love.

Ladan Hussein has some slow-dragged stories in her pocket and some basic, urban-folk melodies in her hands.
Let her clap them together at her will.
