CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

The way Mesirow balances all of Interiors' concepts and sounds into songs this streamlined and appealing makes it even more akin to a marvel of modern architecture; it feels intuitive and effortless, even if it most likely wasn't to create it.

NME

As her sounds grow bolder, her lyrics become more intimate. Mesirow is in confident control of an inviting world that’s all her own.

78
Pitchfork

The homespun warmth and tribal rhythms of its predecessor have given way to chilly digital perfection—though plenty of organic elements persist, in a way that's crucial—and the album as a whole is more thematically unified. 

75
Pretty Much Amazing

Interiors is as sleek and metallic as modernist interior design, conjuring images of busy urban landscapes and the emptiness they can inspire.

The Line of Best Fit

Interiors is often captivating, always interesting and certainly another confident and assured step forward for Mesirow and Glasser.

Drowned in Sound

In taking strides towards fuller arrangements and bona fide song writing, Interiors finds itself lost and adrift.

While these moments of musical wonderment are littered across the album with apparently complete ease, it’s just a crying shame they are just so badly let down by Cameron’s lyrics and singing.

Consequence of Sound

While the debut was full of soft electronic moods and vaguer connotations, Interiors is the step forward that concentrates and connects Mesirow’s lyrical ideas.

A shy attempt at multi-layered, experimental art-pop. Glasser brings mildly interesting vocals and some okk-kilter electronic instrumentation that only resonates at times, leaving the listener behind most of the time in its deeply mesmerizing mazes. If only the layers were more vivid and the songwriting more compelling...

I am such a fan of hers. I'm not sure this is as good as Ring, but Forge is a GREAT song.
