"A sonic platter of equally pleasing and unnerving textures that bleed effortlessly into one another, as drums pummel along and guitars soar to an abrupt and satisfyingly destructive climax." - The Line Of Best Fit
“The four-piece specialise in dark, atmospheric build. Brooding baritone vocals only add to hints of The National, but in ‘If Dogs Could Talk…’, they throw themselves towards completely different territory in the space of four minutes. Structures collapse with the flick of a switch, and the group swing from elegant gloominess to hyperactive, twitching math-rock. Nothing’s off the agenda.” – DIY Mag
“It’s melodic, yet noisy. Its dark, yet it has its light moments. It’s loud, and then it’s quiet. Their sound is delightfully schizophrenic. It definitely has legs and their weirdness intrigues.” – Louder Than War
“By turns desolate and beautiful, a lopsided look at alternative rock that’s already turning heads on the blogs.” – Glasswerk
“There are shades of The National and co’s deep-seated, brooding sense of intrigue in the EP, which is a hefty burst of guitar-led somberness, all flashes of dense guitar and pulsating percussion.” – GoldFlakePaint
