“both dramatic and danceable” – New York Magazine

“Whatever pause this Australian's childlike voice gives you is almost immediately erased by the sophistication of what unfurls next. She's part Lykke Li, part Feist, and not an iota less interesting than either.”— Esquire

And then there’s Croome’s singular voice: Utterly sweet, but with the thick complexity of honey, rather than a childlike or cheeky bubblegum smack” – MTV World

“Melbourne’s Gossling is an act on the rise… Croome’s stunning vocals are placed on full display, backed perfectly with a rich, full musical arrangement which reveals a band at the top of their game” –
