PRESS QUOTES:

“The Calm Before begins with the eerie clicking of clarinet keys. Cello, flute and chiming hang drum add texture and tone to a stimulating record that uses subtle variation of recurring motifs to hypnotic effect.” BIG ISSUE

“The Calm Before works magic with fluttering loops and airy flutes, while Luna achieves Sigur-Ros  like elevation, finding new pleasure in the creation of sound itself” Q MAGAZINE

““The Calm Before” is the first preview we’ve heard, and it’s hard to imagine a better introduction” STEREOGUM

“Resolve puts her comfortably on par with neo-classical giants Nils Frahm , Max Richter  and Hauschka.” ★★★★ MOJO

“Enriched instrumentation and subtle electronic flourishes make this Ackroyd’s most rewarding collection.” 7/10  UNCUT

“Lovely tunes and scrupulous attention to detail make ‘Resolve’ Poppy’s best album to date” 8/10 CLASH

“a neo-classical force to be reckoned with.” ELECTRONIC SOUND

“A gloriously cinematic piece of music,’”  HI FI CHOICE ★★★★★
