“This is an exceptionally beautiful EP and one that should be on everyone’s radar”
“Botting’s delivery and subject matter are beautiful and sad in equal measure, especially on this EP’s standout track Don and Anna”
“These quietly energetic and stylish songs remind me of Alan Horne’s description of Subway Sect, that the idea is to “work not with power, but with weakness and introversion”… Somewhere To Go is a very substantial and richly rewarding record.”
Did Not Chart
“a delicately assembled, heart felt folk record that takes listeners on a wistful journey of love and sacrifice… ‘Somewhere To Go’ is an excellent offering from Owl & Mouse and one that holds a lot of promise for this young band.”
“Hannah Botting is the enchanting singer on this song, offering up her gentle voice over her simple chords. Those of you who love the writing of indiepop, lyrically speaking, will also find her wordplay something special.”
Austin Town Hall
“It’s a song with a great poetic bent to it, so if you like your songs fragile with hearts firmly on sleeve, you’ll find something to like in this song.”
“In the couple of years since Hannah Botting’s first EP under the name she’s formed a band around her but kept her pureish vocal and yearning writing nature intact. This almost too delicately poised self-examination in the face of misplaced trust is from Somewhere To Go”
