"Their debut offering is titled Feeling Things, and the band played the tunes — comforting, atmospheric pop with a soft, almost lo-fi aesthetic that sometimes skirts gentle slacker rock — with, well, feeling."
"There’s certainly a sense of weathered, contemplative wandering and wondering that snakes its way through this utterly charming collection of songs [...] A rare, alluring gem that deserves to rise above the enveloping fogginess of the season, ‘Feeling Things will make you do just that, in far more superlative ways."
"'Music is about healing, empowerment, access, communication, and supporting one another' says Kate Lahey, who records under the band name Weary. 'And feeling things.'"
"[On] her debut Feeling Things – a soft, guitar-pop affair [...] Weary offers tender reminders that it’s okay to feel things."
"[Feeling Things] exceeds expectation, and sets [Lahey] up as a new musical trailblazer in the province.”
" With the release of their debut seven track EP in December, Feeling Things, Kate Lahey has been making a name for herself in the local music scene. The entire album reflects a process of self-care and healing, which is a strong and empowering message for any woman, and anyone, for that matter. The entire album exceeds expectations."
