Music reviews[edit]

Music reviewers have described Marston's music as "instantly catchy, energetic pop rock tunes,"[14] "upbeat,"[16] and "crunchy."[17] Guitar World editor Brad Tolinski described Marston's lyrics as "unique" and that she has "something to say" which is "worth listening to."[18] My Old Kentucky Blog wrote her music has "ragged urgency."[18][19] Her vocals have been described as "over-enunciated,"[20] "understated,"[21] as having a "shy slur to sexy shout"[15] with an "endearing loneliness"[3] and a "quirky confidence."[22] Another commented:

Another reviewer wrote that the "title track spins and jams with ferocity that doesn’t take away from Marston’s melodic quality."[3] Another described her lyrics as "sleepily whimsical poems"[23] while another described them as "quirky and charming."[24]
