The mixtape allows space for this experimentation, jumping from one emotion to the next, yet finds consistency in Biig Piig’s inability to stand still.

The Arts Desk
Smyth’s musings on connection, desire and loss glow with personality, her silky voice is a thing of wonder, there are constant twists that stop the stylistic references falling into cliché, and the whole thing holds together fantastically.

Another very solid project from Biig Piig. It maintains her very chill sound from her EPs, but this record is much dancier than her previous work. I like the direction she's moved in.

Biig Piig brings some interestings ideas with this mixtape but ultimately 'Bubblegum' becomes very boring and same-y as it goes on.

Very same-y sounding tracks with only two memorable moments.
