RECENSIE VAN ERIC CORTON:
“IN HET KADER VAN DE STERKE DEBUUTPLATEN KOMT LAKSHMI MET EEN DEBUUT WAAR JE NIET OMHEEN KAN. STERKE SONGS MET GOEIE MELODIELIJNEN WORDEN GEFUNDEERD DOOR ZWARE SYNTHS EN SOMS MACHINALE BEATS. MAAR NERGENS WORDT HET LOODZWAAR DOOR DE LICHTHEID EN ZEGGINGSKRACHT VAN DE STEM VAN LAKSHMI DIE VAN DEZE PLAAT ÉÉN GEHEEL MAAKT... UITSTEKENDE EERSTE DUS..SMAAKT NAAR MEER….” — ERIC CORTON

For LAKSHMI was writing and recording her first full album a feast: "I can work with people who I admire very much. It was so nice to work with Thijs! In terms of atmosphere and musicality being on a line so we did not close any compromise. That feel and hear back on the plate "themes on the album are alienation and observing the world at a distance". The idea that everything in the world seems to play like a movie, you do not participate but analyzes, as it were, if you were sitting behind glass. Or if you're on your own in a very busy, strange city and look at all while you are entirely anonymous. That feeling I try to capture in music and lyrics. "
Self singer-songwriter LAKSHMI describes her music as Dark Electronic Pop. The mix of poetic lyrics, dark violins and heavy synths make you think of a love triangle between Lana Del Rey, Massive Attack and Warhaus. But for a cheerful poptrack, albeit with an edge, she does not turn her hand.
