From 2019, the RTE Choice Prize nominated debut Bath Time from Maija Sofia (Ireland / Galway) 

** we have about 15 units left of the 180gsm / marble Anniversary repress from 2020 - the nicest touch on the repress is we decided to use uncoated card, include lyrics on the inner and the disc itself is gorgeous.. in short, it's LUSH and low on stock **

"There is a timeless quality to Sofia’s songwriting style that becomes more crucial with each listen.“ The Irish Times ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

“The music of Maija Sofia is steeped in melancholia and history, drawing on the folk idiom and punk’s DIY ethic.” - Irish Examiner

“Luminous, twisted brilliance ....Evokes an intimate world that hangs on the tendrils of a voice that yearns to speak” - Gold Flake Paint

"A softly fermenting fury washes at the stains of an unjust past.” 9/10 The Line Of Best Fit

"breathtaking folk magic" Earmilk

"Maija Sofia’s debut is a triumph and this is an album that needs to be heard." 10/10 The Last Mixed Tape

"This is a brave debut from Maija Sofia. It would have been very easy to exploit her ethereal vocals and songwriting stengths to romanticise her native Ireland. Instead she uses this debut album to make a defining statement about the role of women, and seeks reparation for their misrepresentation over the centuries in both culture and legend." Fatea Magazine

"A real timeless quality is rare in so much of modern music, but the delicate timbre of Maija Sofia's music is impossible to ascribe to a particular moment. She doesn't occupy an easily identifiable space - there are few genres which could accurately pinpoint her sound - and the ease with which she weaves grand tales of mythos into short and delicate folk tunes suggests a true finesse. Her subject matter is seldom trivial - abuse, mythological stories, feminism and loss are considered with a confident serenity [...] Fans of Sofia wait with bated breath for the release of her first full-length LP in 2019."
