“Wondrous. A true alternative to the wan psychedelic folk of today’s lady-pop troupe” – MOJO

“I recently went to see Gemma Ray in concert and was really impressed by her unique blend of songwriting, voice and musicianship. Not to be missed!” – Jimmy Page 

“Blowing sugary femme-pop out of the water. Gemma Ray is untouchable” – NME

“An eerie aural kaleidoscope that conjures up thoughts of what an album by Mary Weiss of the Shangri-Las produced by David Lynch would have sounded like. Though it echoes with references to mid-’60s melodramatic pop, it’s of the moment and a delight.” – Wall Street Journal

“Had Phil Spector forced his girl groups in a more noir-soundtrack direction, this might’ve been the result. Ray has a truly impressive feel for vintage pop flourishes, layered to lavish effect. And all those details are what you’re supposed to be paying attention to, right up until the blade hits your back.” SPIN

“Her aesthetic may be retro, but the tough, moody perspective she brings to vintage song structures feels fresh and ultra modern” – BUST

“If Pulp Fiction were remade to include a church scene, then London’s queen of all things noir Gemma Ray would provide the soundtrack and possibly a part as Uma Thurman’s best mate.” – Live Review by Phil Alexander, Editor MOJO
