  1. 9.0 |   American Songwriter

    Similar to the early work of the equally unconventional PJ Harvey, there’s no telling where McMahon, still just in her mid-20s, progresses to from here. But with the moving, bold and uncompromising Salt, it’s going to be worth watching

  2. 8.3 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The result, if you are willing to engage and get just as vulnerable, is unforgettable. For those who are feeling lost and needing to really listen, Salt will speak loud, and McMahon’s music will remain a steadfast and spectral companion for a very long time

  6. 6.0 |   Uncut

    McMahon has the same eye for poetically absurd detail as her compatriot Courtney Barnett. Print edition only

  7. 6.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Already synonymous for her beckoning and delicately crafted vocal prowess – see track ‘And I am a Woman’ – Salt showcases her humility through fierce and emotive storytelling
