Think this is Essie Holt at her best. The careful and quiet production gives ample spotlight to Essie's tender delivery and the storytelling as Essie lays herself bare.

It feels intimate, softly spoken and lullaby like and yeah it truly is gorgeous. I love the way it just sits with you, like it's meant to bring comfort.
