Brilliant songwriting – it’s a pleasure to listen to such a hard-hitting contemporary band with so much vulnerability and realness at the heart of their work.

Accomplished, fun and thoughtful, Dream is a great calling card for what Silent Gnomes are all about.
Lorine Chia has a sound that is undeniably hers, and the way she floats through the stages of the track, with softness yet intention, is beautifully captivating; and genuinely refreshing amidst today’s musical landscape.
