Tina Bell in Broccoli Magazine #14

"Martin introduced weird tuning and scales that eventually permeated the Seattle scene as a whole, and Bell’s early gospel choir days gave her the full-bodied voice she needed to be heard over the thrashing instruments."  

"Her unpredictable dynamism was marked by shifts between cheeky flirtations with her bandmates and arresting hardcore mic deliveries that felt impossibly powerful coming from her lithe frame." 

Neyat Yohannes, Broccoli Magazine Apr 4, 2022.
