A DIY hero in her home state of Michigan, Stef Chura’s LP for Saddle Creek is a smart and confident grunge revival record. Shades of Colleen Green, Angel Olsen and Girls colour Messes, and Chura’s voice is a commanding presence. She shows good compositional range throughout, zipping between styles with ease, and her knack for a hook doesn’t go amiss either. Good clean fun.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 5th March 2018
Reminiscent of the likes of The Pretenders, The Breeders, Veruca Salt, and Elastica. Rather than a trip down memory lane, Stef applies steady chords over her vocals, which are an instrument to themselves as well. There are hints of stretching out solo-wise, but these songs are taut and economical on this release. Fred Thomas also leaves a fantastic impression on the overall record. A super debut that makes you wanting more. It's worth checking out opener "Slow Motion" and penultimate track "Becoming Shadows" for tasters.
