Entertainment Weekly

In Beautiful Lies, the young Briton employs a healthy assortment of catchy hooks and moving lyrics to sneak a handful of secret gems into a surprising if still familiar third legit record.


Beautiful Lies is Birdy's declaration that she is more than able to make her mark in the big leagues and join the ranks of the alternative pop pantheon.

The Guardian

Growing Pains has an intriguing, almost eastern feel, but there’s more genuine personality in Birdy’s quieter, piano-led confessionals.
