“Traditional song structures are replaced with cyclical songs…. evoking images of 1940s film noir. Elva’s voice is velvety and soft and it almost lulls you to sleep…. ” Dom Alessio, The Brag (now Triple J)
“There is so much space in Heidi Elva’s music…..Elva creates an atmosphere of low temperature and low light…a gothic touch…. made for listening almost by osmosis” Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald
