“They’re shedding new light on the intense but often subtle dynamics of male-female collaboration…Chart-toppers in their own country, the Stone siblings create the kind of music -- quiet, but driving, and rich with aura -- that turns casual listeners into cultish fans.” – LA Times
“Barefoot in a jade chiffon maxi dress, a flower in her hair, Julia looks like a young Loretta Lynn wafting around her first Glastonbury. Angus also sports a yellow bloom – in his trilby – but has the wild hair, beard and more earthy charms of Chas Hodges…watching the family Stone is like taking a minibreak – warm, intimate and inviting – you'll feel better for it.”– The Guardian (UK)
