"Pena Hughes-John is one of those persons who can’t seem to stop herself from being creative. Her musical styles are diverse. Her music is an interesting combination of numerous genres, depending on the project she is working on at the time."
"Pena Hughes-John was the Chrysalis and now Lethia's Natorium has become the butterfly and her music is ready to fly!"
"It’s hard to hate Pena Hughes-John’s music even though she doesn’t just give listeners what they want to hear. It takes balls to be different and to follow her heart, but Pena Hughes-John does that with every song she writes, co-writes and performs even though some people might not agree.
The British artist is such a versatile musician. There’s only things that you can’t imgaine and nothing she’s not able to do. There’s always the element of surprise in her work and those suprises and passion that seems to instantly fill the room with spirited melodies and soundscapes becomes so attractive. "

"The song starts from the classic violin melisms that permeate our soul and sways little by little, putting us in an almost hypnotic state from the flow of emotionally deep melodies. Singing is magnetic and bewitching. The music instruments that roll back sound unique, adding their charm to the ornament of this powerful work."
"Setting the frequency with an enigmatic and cerebral sound, which is a reversed piano, fused with grand strings and and immersive layered textures, we are immediately hypnotized by Lullaby, the first release from Pena Hughes-John‘s Lethia’s Natorium. "
“Lullaby” is a perfect name for this song, this is a mellow soothing tune that feels like it came out of a dream. The epic intro is very intimidating and takes you by the hand preparing you for what’s next. The strings and violas orchestrations throughout the song will take you to another world. The melodic vocal parts play a contrast game with the spoken poetry and that effect on spoken parts gave it texture and depth, I also loved the buildup that was done from spoken poetry slowly to the vocal harmonies and how they were accompanied by guitar melody."
"Inner Child" is objective, and gains solid and direct foundations, and hooks the listener already in its first execution. Easily assimilated, the song has a strong chorus and details that show that the composition is even more comprehensive. The most attentive listener will notice the light synth beds that give the music a modern air, even though it is as visceral as possible.
Pena Hughes' vocals are very natural, sounding jovial and maintaining a good balance. The singer explores well her timbre, without committing exaggerations and manages to perfectly fit her lines to what the song asks. Excellent 'backing vocals' give the necessary help, making the sound even more captivating."
"There’s is a certain 80s flavour in Lethia's Natorium’s artistic output, likely due to the band she grew up with: Blondie, Toyah, The Smiths are all cited as meaningful inspirations. Not surprising, given the depth of the artist’s career, travelling through many aliases and projects. Today, Pena doesn’t fear expressing herself without mystery. The music is fierce, proud and loud, and we are here for it.
‘Inner Child’ is the project’s latest effort, released earlier this month. Over an electric rock backdrop, Pena Hughes-John builds her catchy songwriting and immersive vocals. The ability to re-discover our playful side is at the core of the lyrical theme."
"What makes a song really sensational? When can we say, "Does this song work?" When we were able to mix and shape the various musical genres to create a unique and original product. And that's exactly what happened to Pena & Lethia's Natorium that in its new single entitled "Inner Child" brings back folk, punk and rock influences in an unparalleled combination. A rhythm punctuated by the sounds of electric guitar, accompanied by vigorous energetic and vibrant percussion. The voice echoes in the central part of the piece, immediately followed by an electric guitar solo that you do not expect, which steals the scene leaving you literally speechless."
"“Inner Child” introduces us to the rocking side of Pena Hughes-John and it is a cool introduction, her alternative rock style, powerful fluid lyrics, and catchy melodies put you right into the song’s mood guaranteeing an enjoyable listening experience. Looking forward to more, cheers!."
" Growing up in a fast-paced mundane world, we slowly lose the touch with our inner child and become “bound by invisible chains” as the song describes. Conforming to the norms of a society where the grind of living from paycheck to paycheck is glorified, it kills our soul one day at a time. We need to get in touch with our inner child to break free of this chain but often it’s gone too far. "
" The vocals that open ‘Here We Go’ brings the joy of heading out for some fun with friends to life. Hughes-John’s vocals call out to you through the opening and draw you into the joyful screams of excitement and the colours of a theme park. As she heads into the chorus, there is an echo to her vocals that leads you further into the shining lights of the track. There is a touch of euphoria in her performance that fills your chest with the rush of joy and the overall upliftment of the single."
