You can tell that this band has been brought up on a diet of the best bands of the Nineties, and they aren't afraid to distill their influences into a sound that is their own. The result is confident and unforced" - BelfastToday.net (Fears of men single review) "You sense they could slide up the slipstream to become a band of the people with such heart wrenching anthems as 'In Denial'" - Designer Magazine, Manchester
