"How one Saskatchewan festival is developing lineup diversity for the Prairies"

Natural Sympathies stunned on the mainstage with the help of The Mutual Affection, proving more acts should have members of their show who are there exclusively to dance. - A.Side


"FEMME WAVE 2017 – SASKATCHEWAN TAKEOVER"

Regina’s Natural Sympathies is an intergalactic melange of electronic elements framed through an organic perspective. Bombastic synths swirl around Amber Goodwyn’s pointed and oddly anecdotal vocals, making the coolest soundtrack for a celestial road trip through time and space. This multi-talented solo act will surely take you to new dimensions and back again. - Beatroute


"Song Premiere! – Natural Sympathies “Space Invaders”"

“The beat provided by Jeremy MacCuish is propulsive, the persistent handclaps sounding less like happy applause and more dire, like a teacher urging you to move. Goodwyn’s vocal is well written to compliment the crisp sounds by switching between explosive, disjunct phrases and more lyrical melodic lines. The space provided in the chorus for a tweeting motive to playfully answer the words creates wonderful counterpoint, considering the previous lyric was “cannibalism”. - Runaway Pup


"[LISTEN] NATURAL SYMPATHIES – SPACE INVADERS"

Regina is perhaps not the place you’d expect music with such urban slickness and immediacy. However, despite the impressive “future gloom” provided by the beats of Jeremy MacCuish, it is the intelligent and sympathetic vocal performance of Amber Goodwyn that elevates this tune beyond mere engaging electronic pop. - Ride The Tempo


"6 NEW ALBUMS FROM SASK. MUSICIANS THAT YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO RIGHT NOW WHY NOT"

“Opening with a blast of gleeful electro energy comes “Space Invaders”, the latest single in advance of the Strange Heavens EP from Regina’s Natural Sympathies. Despite the rigidity of the beats and the driving handclaps, “Space Invaders” still feels highly fluid, with light atmospheres shifting between sparseness, crystalline synth-lines and a varied vocal delivery that ranges between chorus-fiery and woozy disorientation”. - Ominocity


"MUSIC THE BEST NEW MUSIC OF 2016: WE REVIEW NINE OF THE MOST OKAYIST SASK ARTISTS"

“Featuring stripped-down percussion beats, obtuse synth sounds and melodic vocals comes the premiere single from Regina’s Natural Sympathies. The solo EP comes via Amber Goodwyn, her first music project post-Cobra & Vulture, a Montreal guitar-drums trio. While the drum machine pops and propels, Goodwyn’s strong voice takes center stage with loops providing a ping-pong backing effect amidst the occasional stark guitar chug. It’s a satisfying listen that seems to hint that there is much more pulsing and oscillations to come.” - Ominocity
