About the sophomore album Blossoms Of Your World:
"It’s an evocative showcase of the human touch at work, and an exciting return from one of Slovakia’s most promising musical exports."
- Mitch Mosk, Atwood Magazine, New York
“Supercritical amount of beauty”
- Marian Jaslovsky, Tyzden Magazine, Slovakia
"They are in their early twenties and create musically polished songs. The pillar of their work is surprising maturity. Few people at this age can sing and play so convincingly."
- Dennik N, Slovakia
"The gloomy but beautiful atmosphere of songs will immediately engulf you in their perception of the beauty of the acoustic performance. The combination of Kristina`s voice and Jacob`s playing creates a truly extraordinary musical experience. Their interplay sensitively creates an atmosphere with ease and charm. As a listener, you will feel amazed and inspired."
- Jazziz Magazine
"Their ability to deliver ingenuity to their expression sets them apart today’s music and fashion–style trends, lets them stand out, and makes them sound so special."
- PreludePress, Denver, Colorado
"Two big successes in just a few days - winning a young talent contest at the Bratislava Jazz Days and a concert as a support band of one of the biggest stars on the jazz scene, the American singer Dianne Reeves - are a great culmination of a yearlong endeavor. Anyone who has seen them live must be clear that they have a great future ahead."
