“Is there a better songwriter in Wales than Liz Hunt at the moment? Her band’s third album Wasting Away and Wondering is their masterpiece, and one of the best pop records Wales or anywhere else has produced in too long.. this should be a celebration” - Swn Festival
“a sweet set of ‘60s-steeped pop..combines guitars, keyboards, strings, horns and a variety of percussion with breathy, plaintive vocals, lovelorn lyrics and wistful melodies on sturdily crafted songs ranging from swinging Motown-indebted tunes to atmospheric ‘60s girl-group ballads” - KEXP
