AllMusic Review by

The Welsh alt-singer/songwriter's debut full-length release, Me Oh My, introduces Cate Le Bon's fragile, sometimes ominous vocal delivery and yearning, unsettling songwriting style. The album, with varied instrumentation ranging from electric guitars, synths, and drums to solo acoustic guitar with vocal harmony, is alluring but far from sweet, at least as a whole, with leaping melodies, sharp synth tones, and lyrics like "I dig all night with tired eyes/The dogs are dead and I'm getting older…" (from "Digging Song"). If "creepy but vibrant psych-folk" sounds intriguing, this one shouldn't be missed.
