Bob Lugowe, Associate Director at SONY: “Sounds a bit like Kurt Vile on codeine… I dig the band name and album artwork too.”

Rebecca Rothschild of Divide and Conquer writes: “A big part of that comes from their concept of percussion. It's like they're 3D printing the tune right into your ear canal… Typically albums in this ballpark like to keep it light and fluffy. This album is anything but light and fluffy. Each track has weight and gravitas to it. Yes you're going on a journey, but your feet are rooted into the ground.”

Amelia Vandergast of A&R Factory writes: “Ever heard a Psychedelic Alt Rock track so transient that it’s bordering on ethereal? … Just what kind of alchemy they weaved into the production I will never know, yet the lucid layers of the track are enough to induce you into a pure state of catharsis.“

The Deli Magazine Philadelphia writes: “Tranquilizing reverberations dissipate along an experimental tract. Combining that measured, melodic, meditative state with more aggressive, deep-tunneling grooves, there’s an isolated eye on the future landscape. It's a head trip that doesn't venture too far from home, exploring another wrinkle within the mind.”
