In 2008 her self-titled, five-track debut EP, produced by Juan Penguin was released to critical acclaim.

Mavis Vermaak lends a hypnotic soundtrack to the day… bridges generations, language, eras and landscapes… This strange music settles in your central nervous system and keeps resonating in your inner ear. - Deborah Steinmair, Author

Mavis Vermaak’s ambient electronica-ish almost-but-not-quite spoken word acoustic folk-esque debut is a longing, a yearning for something exquisitely out of reach. -Roger Young, Mahala

… a superb collection of spoken-word pieces backed by some fitting minimalist grooves.- Lloyd Gedye, Mail & Guardian

... a quiet, charismatic exploration of the subconscious. - Cosmo Rocks


released May 1, 2008
