“Sea and Dirt is a charming electro-folk record created by Christian Winther and Ina Sagstuen, aka GIRL. Sounding out of step and out of time from many of the Nordic guitar and pop scenes, it’s this uniqueness which makes GIRL such a refreshing act” – Line Of Best Fit (UK)

“One acoustic guitar and two voices. It has been done before. Still there is something unique with the Norwegian duo GIRL.” – Audun Vinger, Dagens Næringsliv

“Music that resonates with something on the inside. Sometimes that’s just how it is. This is how I feel with GIRL and their wonderful debutalbum ‘Sea And Dirt’ ”. Pop songs loaded with threads from music played in the decades before us and performed as the most natural thing ever, like the songs have always existed.» – Susanna Wallumrød

“The material contains both British folk and improv, American blues and americana and a somewhat aparte variation of the usual singer/songwriter-style, recognised by voices that wrap together in the most captivating way. Reminding a bit of the acoustic bossa nova-influenced projects all post-rockers from Chicago was doing for a while.” – Audun Vinger, Dagens Næringsliv

“The magic is in their voices: The duo often sings together, and their voices kind of sounds the same, everything could be his or hers, and they’re gliding into each other in completely unique ways” – Marius Lien, Morgenbladet

“Their album, ‘Sea and Dirt’, released this Friday is a masterpiece of natural simplicity, and their music will really get under your skin, if you’re willing to give it a chance. … GIRL have made a real impression with their debut album, not just because of their music, but because of their wonderful approach to songwriting.” – Nordic Music Review
