CRITIC REVIEWS

Eerie, melancholy and yet strangely soothing, The Deserters is an album to treasure, whatever the season.

80
The Fly

Such luscious orchestration is a rare delight, which added to the soft, spooky nature of her voice leaves ‘The Deserters’ with a wintery chill.

70
NME

Much of the charm of ‘The Deserters’ lies in the winter-blasted chime of Zeffira’s voice, and those frozen-hinterland soundscapes. 

63
Pitchfork

A little more stylistic and structural variety could lead to something special. 

50
PopMatters

Zeffira is on her own on The Deserters and, for all the promise shown on Cat’s Eyes, a little extra help could have been used here.
