"From working with labels such as Diskokaine through Permanent Vacation, and alongside artists such as Italo disco legend Fred Ventura and 'chillwaver' CFCF, Shapiro has become the figurehead for the dreamy, spirited pop/indie-disco sound. Her latest for Paper Bag (who initially released a collaboration with CFCF) is a chirpy indie-disco number that takes a cue from vintage 4AD (Cocteau Twins) mixed with just an oversweet touch of '80s Euro-pop; and the result is nothing short of lovely."
"Achingly sweet and earnest"
"Taking on elements of indie pop and mixing wispy vocals with light-as-helium synths and even a flute solo, "What Can I Do" feels as inconsequential as a day in the park. It's the sort of track you'll want to play again as soon as it's over, for fear that it might just float away forever."
"Bedded with newly warmed synth tones and shimmering guitars, "What Can I Do" offers a tender take on acoustic pop that eschews the expected electro backdrop. Still, the pair haven't forgotten their roots: As Shapiro's vocals rise to the puppy-soft chorus, she's backed by syncopated disco drums. And you know what it sounds like? Only the best pajama dance party ever!"
