Reviews of Cages“All grounded in beautiful music and a glorious story. A story of heart. A story of shared humanity. A story for our times right now.” - Forbes
“The songs have a pulsating bass, infectious hooks and a sumptuous serving of auto-tune… These earworms echo the aural aesthetics of Muse, Daft Punk, Ellie Goulding, Sufjan Stevens and Kanye West — if they were accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra.” - LA Times
