'A lovely voice and an ancient script add up to a stunning folk interpretation of New Zealand'.

'There’s something about Arrowsmith’s presence that is a different kind of alchemy altogether – in the unusual quality of her delivery and her enchanting voice, which swings between being light and free, before turning into a growl or lilting into a sweet head voice.'
