"Keeping their arrangement standards a notch above the rest of the world, the singers of Pust have perhaps recorded their strongest release yet with Huggu Over Vatn."
"Pust sounds its heavenly best — shades of early music, jazz, and an extra quality
all its own combine for one of the best vocal atmospheres you'll encounter."
"Huggu Over Vatn translates to "Head above water". While this meaning is universally applied to challenges in one's livelihood, Pust is so far above the water that this group is safety in celestial orbit."
"Pust truly understands how to use the voice as an instrument, with a color all its own."
"Floating on your back on a warm, not hot, summer day. Huggu Over Vatn ("Head above water") is the fluid supporting you from underneath while at the same time rocking you gently from all sides. It is a meditative experience, interspersed amicably with moments of playfulness and intensity. If you have been waiting for just the right time to bask in the music of Pust (Norwegian for "breath"), this is the album to do it."
"Huggu Over Vatn is a restful reverie, with just enough charismatic melodies to keep your head above water. Even if you know no other Norwegian than what you gleaned from this review, the music of Pust is crafted with a feeling that transcends the limits of language."
