“Stellar melodies… From ‘Afterparty’ to the title track Ganya ensures that this journey of deep emotional discovery is framed in an uplifting way, through soundscapes of propulsive beats and glistening synths. Mixing art-pop, dreampop, atmospherics and psychedelia, this record thrums with energy, confidence and euphoria, making it a startlingly original statement.” Electronic Sound

“Mesmerising electro-rock… From the opening lines of her third LP, Helen Ganya promises something out of the ordinary… ‘I Will Hold That Hand For You’ coalesces into luscious electronic pop; ‘Young Girls Never Die’ a grinding, quasi-industrial denunciation of patriarchal ideology, Björk crossed with Trent Reznor… Ganya’s elegant arrangements mesmerise, her vocals taut and poised.” Uncut

’I had a fear of the ordinar’  begins Helen Ganya on the impressive polish the machine. Her song-based electronica succeeds in transcending it through sheer force of personality. The grafting of grit onto a glam sonic surface ensures that tracks like the multi-layered ‘Young Girls never Die’ work as both statement and entertainment. This is a poised, powerful voice arriving.” PROG

Polish The Machine’s opening cut ‘I Will Hold That Hand For You’ suggests a rhythmic and atmospheric kinship with Enya’s Orinoco Flow. Elsewhere, there are hints of Hounds Of Love Kate Bush and Cocteau Twins. A grandeur too, with swelling choruses and boom-crash percussion.” MOJO
