Who LOVES Elizabeth & the Catapult
“Elizabeth Ziman’s voice brims with a fresh confidence against punchy drums and jazzy guitar riffs on the debut album”
“Elizabeth & The Catapult that somehow finds a balance between being smart and witty and smart and proper. …..
Taller Children is an interesting and enjoyable debut album from New York-based threesome.”
“…her band’s jazzy chamber-pop sound doesn’t feel tethered to any place or time. There’s a drop of Sarah Vaughan and Sara Bareilles in Ziman’s zippy, breezy melodies: Fingerpicked acoustic guitar leads the sassy “Momma’s Boy”; the album’s finest moment is a buoyant cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows.”
Time Out New York
“In precisely arranged but casually presented tunes like “Momma’s Boy” and “Rainiest Day of Summer,” singer Elizabeth Ziman chews over the anxieties and the excitements of a bright-eyed urbanite, while her bandmates pepper strummy coffeeshop folk with traces of Tin Pan Alley pop.”
