Aoife has spent time in the west of Ireland over the last two years working on new music. Her 2020 debut album ‘Land of No Junction’ won praise from Uncut, The Quietus, MOJO, Aquarium Drunkard and Pitchfork, with the latter describing Aoife’s voice as “...a headlight in fog. Her debut abounds with deceptively serene serenades and surprising lyrical shifts.”

 

Praise for Land of No Junction:

"Land of No Junction is hugely compelling... an album that goes its own way. You're strongly advised to follow the path it’s beaten." The Line of Best Fit

"The Irish songwriter’s voice shines like a headlight in fog. Her debut abounds with deceptively serene serenades and surprising lyrical shifts." Pitchfork

"Turn on, tune in, drop off: dreamy debut from enigmatic Irish auteur.... questing for the freedom to explore her own private Narnia in peace. A place of quiet certainty - it's a compelling landscape to ponder in a treacherous age." Uncut 'Album of the Month'

"sharing ambient material with Cate Le Bon and Broadcast, these are songs that chime delicately with an uncertain world" **** MOJO

"Her magnificent songwriting only makes those peaks feel higher, and the valleys lower."

Bandcamp 'Album of the Day'

"an alluring languid debut to help the winter months glide by.... drifts along with real charm"
**** The Times

"These songs are careful things, composed and played with an elegant precision, and infused with a deep, netherworldly quality" **** Metro

"a debut full of ideas.... explored with an unrestricted freedom" Loud & Quiet

"One of 2020’s best albums' The Arts Desk

"halfway between beguiling folk and melodic luxe" The Guardian

"ambient pop and dreamy, semi-orchestral psych-folk....Pentangle with Nico and Jane Weaver as co-vocalists... there is much to look forward to from this most individualistic of songwriters." Irish Times
