Our take

In August 2015, Celia Pavey announced that she would be releasing music under her new project "Vera Blue", and first released an EP in 2016, followed by Perennial a year later. Upon announcing the album, Vera Blue said: "Perennial is a term for plants that come back year after year, and I like to relate that to memory, feelings and emotions. It's what the record is all about; relationships can be very cyclical, or never-ending, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's just part of life."

Cameron Adams from the Herald Sun said: "Pavey and her creative partners Andy and Thom Mak fire up a deep house beat, where the bass goes low while Pavey's voice hovers above, detailing how with a few billion humans on the earth she can afford to be choosy. "Magazine" and "Regular Touch" are what you could even call bangers...But there's also brutally tender moments like piano ballad "We Used To" and "Mended" — which manages to pull off being both anthemic and haunting all at once".
