Inspired by the literary works of Audre Lorde, Maggie Nelson and especially the emotional universality of E.E. Cummings (not to mention the visceral delivery of La Dispute and Alexisonfire) the band have already attracted a host of praise from critics and fans alike in just the few months they have existed:
“”Truly excellent”” – Kerrang!
“”Reminiscent of Marmozets, and even At The Drive-In” – DIY
“”Your new favourite band”” – Upset
“Angular but mad hooky. Killer!”” – Daniel P Carter, BBC Radio 1 Rock Show
“”Equal parts eccentric and emotional”” Alternative Press”
