    Ultraviolet is indebted to the charm of the natural world, but with it, Moran unlocks dazzling new ones in the process, keys jammed firmly between the strings of her instrument.

    It is this process of combining darkness and light that make Ultraviolet such an interesting listen, as Moran attempts and succeeds in surpassing the confined spaces of individual genres and practices to create a more holistic work.

    The delicacy and lightness of the album is underpinned by mesmerising, rich textures, constantly buzzing and clunking away beneath the surface. [Jan 2019, p.70]

    Where Bloodroot bristled with bright, dissonant clusters, Ultraviolet is consonant and warm, with steady rhythms and reassuring harmonies. It is a spring rain rather than a freak hailstorm.

    A highly evolved exercise in absorption and restraint. [Dec 2018, p.28]

    Ultraviolet could have had a little more variety in its seven tracks, but it remains an impressive outing by this multi-talented new artist.

    She finds the dilated wonder of spontaneous composition and hones her playful permutations down to a surprisingly concentrated work. The electro-acoustic compositions cascade and bend around cyclic phrases as the album deftly toes the line between impulse and revision.
