"There is an aura of mystique to Smirnova's Bird Language, a stunning blend of Baltic folklore, jazz, pop, and rock, infused with nature- themed sounds. The album was brought to life through the ethereal sound of Lithuanian kanklės, Smirnova's virtuosic, sultry signature vocals, and mimicked bird shrieks, interpolated with jazz piano-driven solos, and sinuous, enticing arrangements."
"All About Jazz"
"[...] her voice evokes feelings of happiness: of being firmly grounded in the real world. Her enchanting vocal improvisations of bird sounds reminded me of tuī songs filled with joy and the anticipation of spring."
- "Jazz Wellington"
"I am especially encouraged by the Eastern European spin she brings to the genre... and belting a few Baltic folklore chants along the way. She provides some unique flavoring to jazz and chamber music."
- Atwood Magazine
"Mood-altering jazz...[combines] Baltic folklore, theatrical and pop-influenced vocals, and chamber music into a unique sound all her own."
