‘Undeniably infectious’ – Uncut
‘Hands Across The Creek is, in short, an exceptional debut record. Well-thought out and has the band breaking out of their comfort zone’ – Clash
‘The group’s newly discovered freedom results in a string songs that have more than an eye for the grubby dancefloor. ‘Common Sense’ and ‘Strut’ are skew-whiff indie anthems in the making, while last year’s breakthrough single ‘National Team’ is refreshed by its new strange surroundings’ – Loud & Quiet
‘Hands Across The Creek was worth taking time over, and will be worth your time in exploring too’
‘Hands Across the Creek, a record which shakes off the haunting direction of previous singles ‘The Last Hangman’ and ‘Daddy’ to adopt a melodic progression of the post-punk sound.’
– So Young Magazine
