Distant Shores - Reception - Netflix
In a positive review for Sounds, Penny Kiley wrote “This record, musically understated as it is, provides a quiet and necessary counterpart to some of the choices of listening we’ve had. We’ve lived so long with melodrama that we’ve forgotten there are other ways of showing passion”.
