about

"The first solo LP by Britta Phillips (Luna, Dean & Britta) is bifurcated into half covers and half originals, and it’s hard to distinguish them, as she makes the covers completely her own via her kaleidoscopic yet distinctly idiosyncratic vision. There’s little luck at work here, but plenty of magic." - UNDER THE RADAR


“Gorgeous from beginning to end, her languid ‘60s filtrations are as much fed by lusher ‘80s AOR. Luck or Magic is evenly split between love and lust, between originals (Daydream resembles Lee Hazlewood writing for the The Bangles; Ingrid Superstar is suitably Velvets-indebted) and covers… distilling a kind of naïve, sad-eyed beauty with a life-affirming glow.” - MOJO


“…rife with the gossamer, exotic melodies so synonymous with Phillips’ other musical projects, Luck or Magic allows Phillips to shine, exhibiting that beyond being a fine vocalist and instrumentalist, she’s also a superb songwriter.” - AV CLUB


“Beautiful, swoonsome, debut by Luna lifer… a delicate album of soft ‘60s-inflected pop that mostly plays out like a great Evie Sands or Bobbie Gentry record. Opener “Daydream” is one overwhelming swoon, Phillips quietly drifting into rapture while the arrangement floats somewhere between Phil Spector and Broadcast.” - UNCUT


“...a magical cover of The Cars’ Drive: her voice aches like Lana Del Rey over a candy floss blanket of synths. Four other covers include a seductive take on Agnetha Fältskog’s Wrap Your Arms Around Me, but her own Daydream sighs like a Bond theme. You hope Phillips doesn’t leave it so long for another solo sojourn.” - CLASSIC POP - UK
