''Laufey’s music often romanticises life’s little moments. Building whimsical orchestral arrangements around these fleeting snapshots – the glow of a candle, the butter on your toast, the shape of a tall tree against the sky – she weaves this spellbinding soundscape with the tradition of 20th century jazz to create a fabric of modern, everyday life.
‘Above The Chinese Restaurant’ takes us on an enchanting journey through Laufey’s memories, from sharing dumplings to hearing her neighbours snoring next door. In reminiscing, she finally realises: “Wish I’d known I had all I could want / In our tiny apartment above the Chinese restaurant.”
What stands out most here is Laufey’s vocal register – her voice is deep and full-bodied, providing a perfect vehicle for the open-hearted sincerity of these songs. She sings with the warm storytelling tone of the jazz greats (Ella Fitzgerald is her all-time favourite), making sadder, personal songs like ‘Night Light’ all the more special and intimate.
 Laufey’s candid self-expression wrapped in the dreamy lilt of the old jazz standards. It feels like you’re in a time warp when you hear the cinematic orchestral arrangement of ‘Beautiful Stranger’ being punctuated by the lyric: “I tend to fall in love on the tube… What if I hadn’t left the train at Ladbroke Grove?” By playing on contrasts like these, Laufey continues to bridge histories and genres within music with ease.''
