"San Francisco indie-pop duo New Spell are like a strange hallucinatory dream."

". . . drips with tumbling echoes and graceful vocal figures"
"San Francisco dark indie-pop duo New Spell knows how to craft moody, heart-wrenching electronic ballads."
"Exploring hot topics – and issues that are close to Kelly’s heart – the [latest] EP is a hard-hitting, percussion-driven, thriller of a collection."
"Music is one of the best healers of them all. This idea isn't lost on San Francisco's New Spell."
"With a beautiful focus on textures and lyrical perfection, San Francisco dream pop duo, New Spell, conquers ethereal landscapes . . . Dark, delicate, and addictive."
“Of Time – Part II is the follow-up to New Spell’s Of Time – Part I, released in 2017. Both collections demonstrate Kelly’s skill in creating vivid worlds and telling stories through her music and lyrics — with soaring vocals and powerful keyboards. This is not your typical synth-pop — it washes over you — immersing you in the experience, while touching you with lyrics that examine what it means to be human.”
