"Marsha and the Positrons are experts in making learning into a fun adventure. Not only are we discovering new things through their clever lyrics, but the masterful melodies draw listeners into a wonderful world of catchy tunes and toe-tapping beats. Marsha's songs explore everything from astronomy to nature and wildlife. Her albums are full of discussion starters that answer those burning questions, ignite curiosity, and keep us dancing and singing along."

"This is a quite superb piece of music, from a band who have really built a name for themselves over the years. The lyrics unravel like poetry, the arrangement is crafted with considerable expertise and the vibe is charming and optimistic. If this song is anything to go by, I'm sure the new album will be well worth a listen. This is a band clearly on top of their game, and I look forward to hearing more from them in the future."

"Flash Single Review: New Leaf "
"...the Positrons’ songs aren’t just brainy — they’re also mood boosters. The band’s latest single, ’Ghost Forest Investigators’ (out on Arbor Day, 4/28) is loaded with feel-good, surf-rock, Scooby Doo vibes, while covering multiple themes of climate change, science, and facing fears."
— Maria Torrieri Bloom, Rockmommy

Never melancholy, 'New Leaf' uplifts the listener leaving them feeling loved."
