“Nir’s wild cover of Iggy Pop’s classic “Lust for Life” is a kaleidoscopic collision of vibrant sonics and Nir’s peppy-punk vox that leaves the listener feeling breathless, dizzified – and alive.” —BigTakeover.com
“Nir brings a joyous flare that exhibits her true lust for life and introduces her diverse vocal range.” —newsickmusic.com
