"muted folk, the intimate, confessional kind; bedroom songs sung from a big city window." - bitzlr.com
"I Heart NYC, along with most of Sorcha’s catalog, feels like a confession she has entrusted the listener with, a sorting-out of the emotions that come with taking life on in the big city." - OurVinyl.com
"New York-based Irish singer-songwriter already demonstrating that she has a fine grasp on how to deliver atmospheric folky pop whose haunted, low-key drama will remind you of Bon Iver or Perfume Genius." - Jim Carroll, The Irish Times
"The 21 year old’s slow-burning guitar and piano folk references New York and doesn’t necessarily feel tied to Ireland at all (rather it sounds a bit like the hushed folk of Bon Iver) . It feels like something born there, out of inspiration from a life’s reshuffle to a big big city." - Nialler9.com
