6/6 GAFFA [SE]
The Death Gospel wonder Louise Lemón is the kind of artist that can capture both the softness and the emptiness of loneliness and turn it into pure gold.

Soulful is not an adequate enough description of her songwriting that is filled with blues, soul and psych. ‘A Broken Heart is an Open Heart is an album that has the rare ability to be pitch black filled with sorrow and oddly enough uplifting at the same time. An addictive record. 4/5 - Slavestate

Lemón has a dark voice she’s not afraid to use. My take was I’m listening to an alternative Whitney or Mariah. A Broken Heart Is An Open Heart deserves attention and success. It is special and manages to set itself apart from many records

Sometimes music comes hard. Louise Lemón is such an artist who blows you completely off your socks. Her enchanting singing in which pain, desire and desperation come together does not let you go... What a record! The Swede combines the desolate feeling of Wovenhand with the dark undertone of The Veils. The vocals are compelling and sultry... This album is intoxicating and takes you to another world. A jet black place where danger and beauty go hand in hand. 99/100 - Counter Culture Netherlands

Louise Lemón took the world by storm with “Purge”. The impact was so huge that the term Death Gospel was born and made exactly for her. We’re so deeply mesmerized with her new album and we believe you will too so consider this as a ticket to that voyage you will take to the dark and the light. - World Of Metal

Lemón is an amazing talent who is likely to become a much bigger star in future years. Montaña, the harrowing Not Enough and the bleak Swimming In Sadness are amongst ten tracks of absolute quality. 9/10 - Musipedia of Metal

”It’s almost painful how beautiful it can be sometimes. 
It sounds like a doped Nicole Sabouné or more lightweight Anna von Hausswolff.” – Simon Lundberg, Gaffa

”Her music is soulful, atmospheric and occasionally claustrophobic with more reverb than a Fields Of The Nephilim gig.” – Natasha Scharf, Metal Hammer

8/10 Close-Up Magazine [SE]
”Louise Lemón is an artist with the same crossover-potential as Anna von Hausswolff, Chelsea Wolfe and Lisa Culbert. It’s only a matter of time before Pitchfork and Stereogum will be hugging her to pirces, all while her music is harsh and dark enough to fit in Close-Up” – Jonn Palmér Jeppsson, Close-Up

The voice goes above and beyond, creating the biggest moment of the album. To the end powerful drums stomp through my brain and I am completely ecstatic

Could it be that Louise Lemón is set to become lauded as the next great storytelling songwriter of her generation? It’s entirely possible. Her gothic, dreamlike gloom partners with her dark lullabies to create a perfect storm. - Roadburn Festival
