“Young Tonight” is a near perfect nostalgic track. The sway and vocals soothe us more than we can articulate.” –Ear to the Ground

Zelda Mae begins like a folk track, strummed guitar accompanying Fergus’s high register unusual and appealing voice but, as the arrangement fills out, it takes on a much more epic feel and the harmonies are powerful and affecting – Fresh On The Net
