SONG OF THE DAY “Ora Cogan draws from a wide web of influence, but – truly – she sounds like no other.” ~ CLASH

Critic’s Pick / NNNN “She’s proven herself a gifted songwriter, but in finding a logical way to extend her neo-folk foundation into darkwave territory, Cogan now sounds truly vital.” ~ NOW MAGAZINE

“Cogan moves gracefully between introspective synth ballads and psychedelic folk songs. And while her lyrics focus on corporate greed and environmental degradation, her transcendent arrangements provide relief and hope.” ~ DAILY BANDCAMP
