9/10 from Beat Magazine and features in the PBS Top 10 and the RRR Soundscape.

intricate album with a dark narrative arc’ - The Northsider
Domini is currently touring nationally in support of her recent release Animal In Hiding, a
collaboration with multi ARIA Award winning artist Lior, which received 4.5 star reviews in
