Reviews

In terms of visibility, Kate Tempest is currently way ahead of her performance-poet peers. Out on her own, she sounds like a woman who knows exactly what she's doing -- Observer
One of the brightest British talents around. [Tempest's] spoken-word performances have the metre and craft of traditional poetry, the kinetic agitation of hip-hop and the intimacy of a whispered heart-to-heart * Guardian *
Dazzling wordsmithery. . . As anyone who has seen her perform will know, she doesn't just paint pictures with words when she performs, she paints fireworks in the night sky * Metro *
Tempest's first book of free-standing poetry since 2014's Hold Your Own is a whirlwind of formal poems, spoken songs, ballads and fragments. Capturing the total loss at the breakdown of a beloved relationship or the dangers of catching a song on the radio that can floor you in an instant, Tempest uses words like a time traveller taking the reader into fragments of their own lives, successes and heartbreaks. Read and lose yourself in a total adventure. * Stylist *
A cathartic and deeply moving read - a go-to for the love-stricken and heartbroken * The Skinny *
Reading from the page, without accompaniment, allows her word-craft to shine. * Manchester Evening News *
An honest, witty, mosaic-like view of love in the 21st century. -- Roger Cox * The i *
