Mojo

It initially feels fragile, but Carvings is hard to shake off.

Uncut

Carvings is a more considered affair, stepping back from first-person confessional into a wider canvas of community, place and time.

Paste
The Norwegian singer's second LP is bittersweet, austere and compelling.

The Arts Desk
Norwegian singer-songwriter’s second album stays firmly in the twilight.

The Observer
Accompanied by her husband, brother and uncle, the singer’s sparse, jazz-tinged record, which circles around a family tragedy, feels timeless.

With Norwegian musician Juni Habel, prepare yourself to be charmed. Her second album "Carvings" is one pleasant moment to spend.

The writing is very affectionate and delicately carried by Habel's lovely vocal performance. The first three songs alone already carry the album with their superb music and charismatic tone. While the rest of "Carvings" does feel more familiar, it's never boring and always brings a hug to the heart.

A nice little folk record that starts really strong with the gorgeous Rhythm of the Tides but doesn’t sore to those heights again unfortunately
