"Quietly devastating....when Luluc really want your attention they don’t shout, they whisper. The strongest and most assured record of their career. The songs dig deep emotionally – but critically their aesthetics are well-balanced, the voice and instruments perfectly calibrated. While its predecessors had a tendency for introspection, Sculptor is wide open."- Uncut Magazine Album of the Month

“Luluc’s characteristically intricate songwriting shines on Sculptor. 8/10” - The Line Of Best Fit

"I can't stop listening...I've waited for years for this record" - Bob Boilen, NPR

"✩✩✩✩" - Q Magazine

"✩✩✩✩" - The Guardian

"Sculptor yields centre-stage to Randell’s haiku-like celebrations of human spirit and suburban transcendence. ✩✩✩✩” - Mojo

“Zoe Randell and Steve Hassett are back with an album that complicates their modest aesthetic. The lyrical wrestling and sonic exploration nearly betrays their earliest work yet elevates their catalog—already so celebrated—to another level... Sculptor is an album that feels important. 8/10” - Under the Radar

“Sculptor is a small gift coming at the right time.” - PopMatters

"Luluc have gone to lift their poetic, comforting songs to even greater heights." - The Age Album of the Week

"I've played Passerby on repeat, for months it was the only album I wanted to listen to." – Matt Berninger (The National)
