Album Notes
"Katie Kim - Twelve - the debut solo album from katie sullivan is a beautifully intimate collection of songs centred around sullivans beautifully husky voice. The album has a similar kind of intimacy to the likes of Mazzy Star with hints of the early aggression of PJ Harvey or the more folky based late night feel of Cat Power. The album features some lovely background instrumentation with subtle touches of slide guitar, brushed drums and mellow electronic effects. Its that kind of eclectic collection that reminds of the glory days of labels like 4AD and their collaborative This Mortal Coil projects. It really is a wonderful collection of laid back late night sounds featuring a voice to die for "
Road Records "album of the month" - 2008

" A remarkable beginning "
donal dineen

"One of my favourite Irish albums of the season comes from Katie Kim. "Twelve" is a slow-burner, all weird turns and fuzzy twists. Live, Katie and her two hooded co-players get tougher and grittier in a Mazzy Star rocking out with Cat Power kind of way. Best songs were the ones which book-ended the set, the glorious "Radio" and the rivetting "Jennifer""
The Irish Times '09

"…subtle, slow-burning magic."
Jim Carroll - '08

"Katie Kim's particular quandary is neatly mapped out for us in ten proverbial, illustrious scrapes of paper, seeing to it that the only journey of any relevance, is the one from the artists head to ours... enlightening."
Analogue '08

"Born in London but based in Ireland, former Dae Kim front-woman Katie-Kim Sullivandescribes her sound as 'acousmatic screamo pop'. In fact, she's a trafficker in dreamy space-rock: her songs sound forever in the brink of sinking into Cocteau Twins pastiche, but there's always a sublime melody or quirky hook to keep the whiff of recycled ideas at bay. Independently released, her album Twelve has already basked in ecstatic reviews. If there's any justice in pop, 2009 will see her break free of the local circuit."
The Independent '08

" Katie Kim, you got to hear her burning up the blues and making tunes for snakecharmers to ply their wares. The album is called “Twelve”. A glorious, glorious slew of bang on-the-money slightly not-there pop"
On The Record '09
