William Pezy : Once in a while I receive debut albums that make it quite clear in a short amount of time that they have the so-called special touch. Sometimes it is a journey to find out what it is. This is one of these albums. The production is very nice and songs are played well but these do not make this album the special kind. Singer Olga has a very nice and distinctive sound that at moments show her white-Russian roots. The drum parts and guitar parts are also very nice but still not the sparkling element of the album. Hidden behind her fellow musicians I found Natalia Malei. As founder of the band and composer of the songs she plays the keys and here ukulele with an incredible amount of passion to fulfil her dreams and make this album a success. She definitely is the energy source of this band. This album impresses and when such an album is your debut album, then there is a promising future ahead. With such an album it is time to go out to gather experiences and use it to grow. Songs like ‘The Lost Valley’ and ‘Osceola’ are good examples of a band with its own sound. They have got my attention, it is time you give it yours.
