“The sound of disaffected youth from Barnsley” Steve Lamacq (BBC 6Music)
“Sculie” is pretty quick, with an almost staccato feel to it. It’s fun, and definitely a hip shaker to get you moving – day or night – as the days get shorter.” Impose
“…full of noise and feedback, yet a beautifully melodic song starts to appear and creep out.” Louder Than War
“…fuzzed up, grooving and with a nice thick, grungey guitar sound. “Tori” is the slower, more wobbly of the two and you can hear the influence of The Butthole Surfers with its guitar effects. I also like the unusual intonation on the word “maybe” in the chorus. “Sculie”, meanwhile, is a little more energetic and melodic with an upbeat rhythm section and more prominent trading of vocal duties. This works as a great introduction to the band for me and it bodes well for the future as I hear there’s an album in the offing.” Collective Zine
