The Independent

The centrepiece of the album ... is the impressive “Solitary Daughter” ... It’s the standout track on an album heralding a talent as intriguingly fully-formed and distinctive, in its own way, as Marling, Mitchell and Bush.

Under The Radar

Neither a wasted note nor a moment of excess can be found on Bedouine. And in a time of gross artistic pretentions, it bares none of those things.

The Guardian

There is something so comforting about these songs – it’s like tuning into a lost radio station from the 70s, rich in nostalgia, innocence and the warmth of old analog instruments. One of the most understated and charming albums of the year.

‘Bedouine’ is a debut that signposts good things to come but, perhaps more importantly, it still has plenty to offer in its own right. It’s a well written, compellingly honest album and one that deserves the attention of all those willing to give it time.

Azniv Korkejian’s debut album as Bedouine is absolutely drenched in cool & charm. Laid-back but demands your attention with every walk of bass & swoon of strings. Throughout the album it’s as if she were sat in the same room, singing to you & only you. Every lyric feels personal, but strangely relatable in an incredibly comforting manner, never straying too far from reality. On ‘Solitary Daughter‘ Azniv tells us “I’m calmed by my lonesome / I feel ... read more

Spacebomb is on a roll. The consistently aesthetically effective band suits Bedouine's sound and attitude perfectly. Her wide-eyed yet calm demeanor, combined with lush and rich acoustic soundscapes, makes her debut sound like a long-lost 40-year-old gem, complete with lyrics that could be cheesy or schmaltzy if they weren't delivered with so nicely. It's the sort of album that can be described as pleasant without that being a backhanded compliment. And there cannot be enough praise showered on ... read more
