The letting go with a laptop in the back room project.
Tom Robinson of 6 Music, February 2013 on LET'S GET BACK TO WHERE WE STARTED (featured on 6 Music's 'Introducing':
"We hope you’ll agree the results are haunting."
Tom Robinson of 6 Music, March 2012 on ONE BY ONE (featured in Fresh On The Net Top 10 and played on 6 Music's 'Introducing':
"An excercise in economy and poise. Beautiful understated vocal supported by sparse, carefully worked detail and surrounded by wide open space where you can practically hear the emptiness. This must have taken many hours – and expert judgement – to make."
Elbows Music Blog/ The Devil Has The Best Tuna:
"Kirsten Taylor, aka Bon Arrow has a voice that could melt a diamond. Her minimalist, jazz informed songs are so far off the beaten track they could give a cartographer a coronary. Unholy Fever is the pick of the bunch, it's a smoky echo from the 50s that would grace the best film noir that Hollywood had to offer. If it was any cooler you'd need thermal gloves to handle it."
Jonno Casson, Fresh On The Net, July 2012 on Lonely Road by Bon Arrow & Deadly Stare:
"Everything about this one shouldn’t work, but somehow does, and does so really well. If indeed this is the product of just a person letting go in the back room like it says on Bon Arrow’s Facebook page, then I’d like to hear more from letting go in other rooms too. It’s like the music of Tom Waits with the harmonies of Minnie Ripperton, mad and beautiful all at the same time."
"Exposure is our scrapbook of our favourite new bands. Today's exposure features experimental-pop artist Bon Arrow aka Kirsten Taylor.
Name: Bon Arrow
Genre: Experimental Pop
For Fans of: Bjork, Efterklang
There's painfully little information about Bon Arrow, aside from being the solo project of Kirsten Taylor based in the 'North-West'. Yet this ambiguity in fact serves to perfectly backdrop the adventurous, unique and experimental sounds of Bon Arrow."
