"A stunning debut...Utterly of the strongest debuts we’ve reviewed."

"Hits you like a slug of eyeball vodka & boasts enough melancholy to make your sofa cry"

"draped in a melancholic sound that at first recalls the likes of Yndi Halda & even early Elbow..that distinctive voice & haunting falsetto make sure they very much keep their own sound alive. 9/10

"yearning for a full-length to emerge already. Or just for Stolber to come round & sing your shopping list..the first foray of an outfit set to join A Genuine Freakshow, iLiKETRAiNS, & Her Name Is Calla as Britain’s new breed of intelligent, individual rock bands."

"Imagine a mash up of Thom Yorke, trip-hop beats, & celestial choirs, and you’ll only have an inkling of what to expect..thundering bass lines with swooning emotional passages, capped by delicate strings... an impressive debut EP"

"an impressive debut five track EP that swells with ambitious warmth with sullen operatic intent, a touch of Vessels, and a more than hopeful next step from a band making some impressive early moves"

‎"brimmed with such a sense of wild eyed passion, glorious promise and bursting at the seams ambition..akin to Joseph Arthur fronting Mogwai..a band so brimming with ideas..This is music more like a novel..Chock full of ambition, epic post-rock wonderment and a definite sense of boundary pushing intent" 9/10

"An encounter between Tim Burton, Radiohead, edgy guitars and Lost...they would not be half of what they are without the voice of Stolber..mischievous, powerful, and constantly in place." 4/5
