"Atmospheric one-man electro noise maker Octavia Freud has echoes of Lydia Lunch and Poison Girls melding with more contemporary sound mosaic makers like Tune-Yards and Solex. It is an oddball treat well worth your investigation."
"Lo fi space pop solo artiste Octavia Freud is the most exciting new act I've come across for a long time."
SEBASTIAN REYNOLDS, THEFOUROHFIVE.COM
