"Siren voice, virtuosic piano and extensive arrangements: Magnified, the debut album from the London trio Beatrix Players convinces with dark, emotional tunes and the versatile application of classical instruments. The piano, the cello, the violin and flute create a prevailing mood, intensified with the expressive voice of the singer Amy Birks. The topic of the songs differ. Roses tells about the moment a relationship finally breaks down, why Lady Of The Lake describes the communication between women and men. With the massive piano and the art of the singing, a comparison with Tori Amos and Kate Bush is not far away. But Beatrix Players have their own style, special and individual. The album – a wonderful mixture of folk, jazz and classic – is a must have for fans of heavenly women’s songs."
