Critic Rating

Description

Lydia was perfect, because Soft Voice told her exactly what to do and what to say. But one day, Soft Voice left. SOFT VOICE is an immersive audiodrama about imposter syndrome, perfectionism, and self-loathing starring Naomi Scott, Bel Powley and Olivia Cooke, written and directed by James Bloor.

Jess Joho - Mashable - Jun 19, 2021

"Several episodes in, we're still not entirely sure what's going on, but we know that it's an absolute trip...buckle up for a wild, sapphic, and mind-melting journey best listened to with headphones."

Alice Florence Orr - PodcastReview.org - May 26, 2021

"The chemistry between Scott, Powley, and Cooke carries the show, making the fact that they didn’t record together in the same studio remarkable. The show rarely uses silly sound effects and resists an overwrought soundtrack. Upon first listen, Soft Voice is a darkly comic critique of our fetishization of the “morning routine” or of the way people place moral worth onto the food they eat. But as the show progress, it reveals itself as a disturbing thriller as well, one that explores mental disturbance with contemporary nuance."

Anna Leszkiewicz - New Statesman - Apr 28, 2021

"Slick production infuses the opening episodes with a hazy, gently hallucinogenic quality (the series comes from the young but glossy LA production studio QCode, which has developed a niche in scripted audio series voiced by Hollywood actors). Soft Voice captures the soothing appeal of clear instruction, and the existential terror of decision-making when your own inner monologue is absent."

Kev - Tea In The Sahara - Tea In The Sahara - Mar 24, 2021

"The writing style of Soft Voice really reminds me of the hit series Fleabag by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and you can draw similarities between both shows as I think they are universally relatable shows. Another reason why this podcast has all the hallmarks of a winning show is the beautifully immersive way that the surroundings sucks the listener into Lydia’s headspace along with Soft Voice. "
