The New York Times also recently profiled her in its Style Magazine Online. They described I Will Be There perfectly calling it: “…a plaintive love song with a lilting melody”. Nylon also extolled her writing: “What do you get when you take the soulfulness of Lana Del Rey, the angelic, lilting chorus of Ellie Goulding and the atmospheric hum-along melodies of Polica? Add a dash of shimmery production and the result is the new single from Odessa.”
