Feb 07 London, UK – Folklore
"[When It Comes] feels rooted in ’60s/early ’70s era baroque pop and folk music, and Dana modernizes those sounds in a way that recalls contemporary greats like Weyes Blood and Julia Holter... lush, layered, and truly gorgeous from start to finish." —Brooklyn Vegan
"When It Comes is the sonic equivalent of a morning or evening walk, a space equally suited to looking toward what is to come or reflecting on what has passed. The album manages to do both... The loneliness and immediate sadness of her experiences are captured on the album, but it’s not at all weighed down by heaviness." —Aquarium Drunkard
"Gavanski's songs evoke a very specific nostalgia for the outsider pop acts of the '60s and '70s — chamber pop savants like Margo Guryan and acoustic lumineers such as Sybille Baier — whose work was just a titch too quirky to be fully appreciated at the time of its release. Her current sonic peers include Cate Le Bon, Aldous Harding, and Weyes Blood. But much like the Guryans and Baiers of the past, her sound is unquestionably odder than those of her more established contemporaries." —The Fader
"Gavanski’s collection of avant folk-pop is dissonant, moody and at times quite playful." —Paste
