Come On - "Lovely new Cat Power-esque track" - Nialler9
Cat Dowling has one of the most wonderful voices in Irish contemporary music - and its husky tones are used to mournful perfection on her latest single, Come On - The Ticket
Come On "Simple evocative, gorgeousness" - Ramp.ie
Cruel (Single of the Fortnight) - Hot Press
Echoing indie queen of cool St. Vincent .... it’s a bassy, string-led anti-love song that effortlessly fuses instrumental theatrics with Dowling’s sweetly understated vocal.
‘The Well Runs Dry’, a stonker of a single that brings to mind Amanda Palmer and Beth Gibbons. Hot Press
There's a bit of a buzz surrounding her at the moment and rightly so. A stripped down and bare sound, Dowling reminds me of Portishead with her sultry and raspy tones. Style Siren
“Dowling’s sultry haze of a voice is the defining and pre-eminent feature, as ever, as it shifts and softly cracks above both catchy hooks and soft vibes.” Sunday Business Post
Dowling's austere murmurings are hypnotic ..Irish Times
What really lingers are those vocals – breathy, vulnerable and disarmingly sexy. Sunday Tribune
