CRITIC REVIEWS

85
Under The Radar
Its greatest strength is that it feels effortless, moving from sleek disco to dark-hued punk and beyond without ever missing a step or losing its charm.

The Line of Best Fit

Across Stellular’s twelve tracks we're presented with a strident procession of indie pop that demands attention. Let's not have it be another seven years before her next album.

musicOMH

Stellular marks Elinor Dougall’s return centre stage and, in both title and content, makes good on her expressed desire to be “more assertive”, less apologetic.

80
The 405

After a frustratingly long absence, Stellular feels like something of a coming out party for Rose Elinor Dougall. For a long time, many have hoped that this was the album she was capable of producing. Finally, she has stepped out into the light, her outward-facing confidence having infused her music with a timeless joy.

AllMusic

She may not have the range of a Roísin Murphy yet, the raw emotion of Robyn's best work, or the glam explosiveness of Goldfrapp, but she's not too far behind, and if she makes more albums like Stellular, it won't be long before she's joining their rarified class.

Drowned in Sound

Stellular is very much the fulfillment of Dougall’s potential as a songwriter.

God Is in the TV

It’s obvious she’s trusted her instincts and taken her time to craft this fine record. It’s one of the first great records of 2017.

GIGsoup

The London-based singer-songwriter delivers a set of sweet, heartfelt synth-pop tunes that contain a bracing amount of emotional richness and poetic lyrics.

72
Pitchfork

Stellular is wry, frosty and swooning by turns, romantic but hesitant. 

70
Loud and Quiet
Rose Elinor Dougall’s debut solo album was released several years ago now, and contained some beautifully heartfelt songs, but with ‘Stellular’ it feels like the ex-Pipette has really found her niche.
60
The Guardian
Her mystery and malady are communicated best on dreampop tracks Hell and Back and Colour of Water; moments of spaced-out, doomed romance on an album that’s otherwise a little too long and indulgent.

First listen: I like. I hear a lot of Laetitia Sadier in her voice.
