Johnno Casson reviewed the track:
'Opening up this week is a wonderfully haunting and ethereal folk song from our friend & colleague Debs with Kathy Anderson. A real grower that benefits from repeated plays. I didn’t initially get its full power but it does rather creep up on you when you least expect it so prepare to to be won over.
Debs is quite the all round talent. She is a painter and photographer as well as a maker of music. She trained at The Kent Institute of Art & Design and Goldsmiths, University of London. My guess is that Kathy was the guitarist on this song but have been unable to find any further info.
Debs is also a tremendous pianist and I have found real beauty and joy in her piece Reprise to Fallen. She has four pages of lovely songs on her Soundcloud page too – result!'
