"sunny songs spiked with punk (the Elvis Costello wing of it) and power pop.
— TIME OUT NYC
"high energy power pop with a dose of big city noir.
— BIG TAKEOVER
"a big hooky event with pulsing guitars, armies of vocal harmonies and pumping rhythms.
— NOT LAME
"a warm and friendly radio mix, but the guitars still crunch and howl."
"he's added an integral chapter to the book of modern pop rock" Rating: 10/10
— MAMMOTH PRESS
"a thoroughly modern rock sound with driving melodies. This is a very promising debut."
"his generation's Dave Grohl"
"pop music at it's most savvy."
— EQ MAGAZINE
EP of the day: "an impressive debut"
— ABSOLUTE POWERPOP
"I have to say, this little EP packs more punch that most of the full-length albums that I have bought this year.
"First song on his EP is about selling out to music and movie moguls in Los Angeles, but its riffs and / or hooks can be traced back to the Raspberries and Mott the Hoople."
— THE VILLAGE VOICE
